HuMp DaY Haiku - Full Bloom

Bright spot in the gray
Cheering me on rainy days
Full bloom hellebore

Profusely blooming!
My hellebore Rosemary
helps me know she's near.

I love looking out the kitchen window at my hellebore, which has been in full bloom for the past several weeks. It's so wonderful to have plants that bloom in the end of winter gray weather. If you look closely, you'll also see the daffodils poking their head above ground too! 

And I know you're probably tired of hearing this... but I see a heart in one of the blossoms. I guess I want to see hearts everywhere, so I do. 

I started doing Hump Day Haiku with Carla Sonheim's Silly classes...  and decided as a challenge for myself, I'd continue.  In this process, I have found that creating a haiku (non rhyming poem with 5 - 7 - 5 syllables per line) feeds my soul. 
I especially like creating them to go with my photos and art. 

Would you like to share a haiku you have written?

Beautiful Hellebore that goes very well with your Haiku.Your Hellebore is beautiful. My daffodils are poking their way through as well. Happy Hump Day!

She's beautiful, like her namesake. Her birthday was the
9th. You've got her in a container...hmmm. Great idea. As always, nice haikus, Helen.

I've never heard of a Hellebore. What a beautiful flower! Is it a perennial? Do the deer eat them? Can I grow them in Northern Idaho? Your haiku is awesome today Helen. :-)
Happy HuMp Day!

I agree that it is nice to have blooming flowers on grey wintry days. I can hardly wait for the daffodils.
