Camellia shouts springtime
Instant cure for gloom
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.
It did for sure, Sarah!
Woohoo, the flowers are waking up with us today 🙂

I’m looking outside, Christy, and I don’t see on damned flower. 🙂
Haha Bill, the flowers decided to sleep in today…
Thinking of where Bill lives, I’m wondering if Mr Trump has got blamed yet for the lack of flowers, as he has got blamed for most other things — even things that happened before he was President 😉
Yes, isn’t it wonderful 🙂
And how could one NOT be “de-gloomed” at the sight of those smiling faces!
Love is the magic word, Dale!
😁 Isn’t it though?
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! 😀
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!”
Ahh…at last, I am here! Oh dearest Sarah, your beautiful Camelia and Haiku dismisses all gloom! 🙂 xxxx
Thank you, dearest Sherri. I’m so glad to see that my flower-haiku medicine has worked for you! 🙂 xxxx
It did, it did! You have great medicine my dear friend! I’m taking a short break and will be back shortly this afternoon to read those lovely posts of yours I’ve missed 🙂 xxxx
Thank you 🙂
oh they are!!!
Yes, indeed 🙂 And the more, the merrier!
Yes! The gloom, for me, has been a while in dissipating, but flowers always help 🙂
It looks as if I should have sent some sunshine up North, too! But, as you say, Andrea, the flowers help, although I believe that some of my friends in the US haven’t many flowers, even, to brighten their days.
