The Sunday Posts 2013/ Sure Proof

I can no more describe you
than I can put a thing for the first time
where it already is.

or pour a table into a jug...

I'm not good at impossible things
And that is why I'm sure
I will love you for my ever.

Still bloomin cauld Yamini - but a couple of daffies have poked their way through.

Off today {Sun} Tues and next Saturday......
