Primroses in June

What could be prettier than primroses in the dappled shade of a cottage garden?

Just ask Keats or Byron or another Romantic poet . . .

My reply– nothing could be prettier.

Or maybe primroses amidst a daisy patch?

But then I spied these. Best of all would be primroses in bright sunlight that highlights the unique patina of each petal.

And there you have it, my inspiration for today. I’m editing for someone, and the manuscript’s adjectives, metaphors, and other colorful language brings the characters to life. That’s our goal, always–whether writing fiction or nonfiction.

So many nuances to each lovely, delicate primrose!
