Camellia shouts springtime
Instant cure for gloom

    1. 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.

      1. 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 😉

    1. 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 🙂 🙂 🙂

      1. 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! 😀

  1. 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!

    1. 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!”


      1. 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

    1. 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.
