yellow and blue two little crocuses by the church wall

Hi Gerald!

Any chance you could make the photograph choice to large so when we click onto it we can maybe read the sign?

I really enjoyed the rhythm of this haiku!

Actually no I can't.
The original photograph from which this crop is taken is very poor indeed. You can only read as much as you can of the sign due to a very heavy enhanced contrast being applied. It is virtually a 100% crop from a much larger picture.

But in any case it is a different church and a different time as well as a different blue and yellow!

The haiku though is fresh yesterday.

I like fresh as yesterday! (-;

Thank you again for the haiku. It's a delight to read out aloud, but I have only done this a few times as I'm getting strange looks.

I like the haiku's lilting read. A lovely image, enhanced by the accompanying photo. Very nice, indeed.

Is this church in Macclesfield?

The Church of St Michael and All Angels?

If so I understand that there are some stain glass windows worth seeing there.

This Church too has some good stained glass - a Kempe window.

Thanks Little Onion! So you have hung out at Bristol at some time then?

I also echo what Denis has said, and have enjoyed revisiting this image and haiku.
