ABC Wednesday - Verdant

I did a double take when I passed this municipal planting on Sunday, a bit of serendipity for this weeks letter. The verdant grass had been cut and new plants, arranged and designed, I will have to wait for the rain and sunshine to do its work to see what the other symbols will grow into and what it is commemorating. But this week I am celebrating the verdant countryside, and the reason we passed this planting was to walk along
the seawall, and then to the seashore. The elderflower growing on the banking.  It does not seem long ago
that the bluebells were diluting the verdant green with their intense blue, and the
dandelions had made their first appearance, in profusion, as if to alert the gardeners, hey we are back, the great survivors. 
But eventually the fields will turn a lush and
verdant green in the valleys
and on the coast with the patchwork fields.

Vault over to ABC Wednesday where there are lots more words starting with V

The countryside is so beautiful. I wish bluebells grew here as abundantly as they do there!
