HuMp DaY Haiku - Fairy Bells

I've always wondered...
Why call this flower fox glove 
when they're fairy bells?

With the recent mostly-warm weather, the fox glove are coming into bloom. They grow taller and the blossoms open almost as we're watching. I love this time of year! 

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? 

You may include a haiku in the comments, OR you may copy your blog post url (featuring a haiku) and add a link to your blog using Mr. Linky. And consider visiting other contributors blogs to see what they've created and say hello.

The pink one is gorgeous. They compliment the chives very nicely. Check wikipedia for foxglove. You'll find that "fairy bells" is part of the plant's history.

As a child I would see these tall beauties growing in clear cut forest areas. Never, ever, did I see a fox. A fairie maybe, never, ever a fox. Let's rename them.
