On my daily bike-ride to the local shops,
I pass an empty field outside the GP clinic.
Most of the year, it’s just a bare field with long, uncut grass.
But in spring, it changes.

are considered weeds here.
They’ve spread far and wide, pushing out our own native flowers.

their abandoned spread;
their cheerful, bright colours …
