Submitted to Jenn’s Sensational Haiku Wednesday. The theme is Frost, and so is the title!

This was written a few months ago–maybe even last year–in Autumn. Right now, frost is all around us.


Last week, a first freeze
surprised our garden fairy.
Her flower wilted.

    I liked the Haiku…glad to also hear the Fairy is doing well.

    Thank you for sharing and have a Happy New Year.


  3. To those of you worried about the fairy, I want to assure you that she is doing just fine. We brought her inside and she is basking under an African violet. :0)

    If she was surprised then, goodness she must be positively frigid now. Hopefully she’s alright…fun little haiku.

    Poor garden fairy,
    Her flower nipped in the bud,
    That’s why she’s frosted!

    I love those garden fairies. I also love the fairy gardens.

    Very clever of you, having a surpised fairy. Next year perhaps she will be more seasoned.

    Happy New Year! Thank you for your visit and the nice comment. Best wishes on the golf holiday. πŸ™‚
    I bought a new driver on eBay last Friday. It came today; I will try it out tomorrow.
