Writing about border in bloom (8)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'bloom' is the definition.
'writing about border' is the wordplay.
'writing' becomes 'prose' (I've seen this in other clues).
'about' indicates putting letters inside.
'border' becomes 'rim' (I've seen this before).
'prose' going around 'rim' is 'PRIMROSE'.
'in' acts as a link.
(Other definitions for primrose that I've seen before include "Early spring flower", "Pale yellow- a primula", "Wild flower (connected to an attractive path?)", "Flower - pale yellow", "Yellow spring flower from promiser", "Pale yellow flower", "Woodland flower", "Woodland plant with pale yellow flowers", "grows wild" and "something in the bed!".)
