  1. Any flower, at this point in the year, would help lift the gloom, but I don’t see any! 🙂 I must practice patience. Sigh!

    As always, I love your haiku!

    • You need to buy some indoor flowering plants to make up for the lack of them outside. I love my white orchid that’s in full bloom in my sitting room. And my African violets produce blooms from time to time throughout the winter. I suppose that watching for flowers outside, is a bit like standing watching and waiting for the kettle boil — it seems to be forever. I so hope that my haiku cheered you and offered some respite from the gloom.

    And how could one NOT be “de-gloomed” at the sight of those smiling faces!

    • Quite — they do look as if they’re smiling. That camellia plant doesn’t belong to me, but soon the one in my garden, that’s directly in my line of sight from my office window, is going to come into bloom. It’s covered with buds now, after I saved its life. Last winter, the wind smashed the pot and flung it out onto concrete in a dark place. It is now in a new pot in a sunny place and has had lots of special food to help it make lots of smiley faces 🙂 🙂 🙂

        It can only respond to your love and care with a bushful (treeful?) (plantful?) of smiling faces after the wind was so callous with it! 😀

  4. You must have been writing LOTS lately. 🙂 You’ve inspired me to share one haiku a day over on Twitter. Hehe. I’ve been doing so for 2-3 weeks. It’s really fun! Keep up the great work and beautiful photo!

    • I’m so glad to have inspired you to share a haiku a day on Twitter. When I go there next, I will do a special catch-up of your tweets 🙂 Unfortunately, I felt it necessary (for the sake of my tranquility) to boycott Twitter throughout March, as I was fed-up with people trying to sell me stuff through a direct message the moment I did a reciprocal follow. To me, that’s a bit like going up to a complete stranger at a cocktail party and saying “Hi, I’m Bob Bighead. Buy my book!”


  5. Ahh…at last, I am here! Oh dearest Sarah, your beautiful Camelia and Haiku dismisses all gloom! 🙂 xxxx

  7. Yes! The gloom, for me, has been a while in dissipating, but flowers always help 🙂
