Hellebores dance at Nature’s ball
Joining with Ronovan’s haiku challenge (challenge words flash & dance) and Sandra of Wild Daffodil’s photographic challenge (challenge word extra). Thanks to them for hosting and apologies for more dancing blooms!
Extraordinary hellebores dance at Nature’s ball
Hellebores dance at Nature’s ball, petticoats flashing
Your beautiful words hardly need the photo to back them up….but I’m glad it’s there.
Thanks rickii – and I am afraid I looked up the skirts of several hellebores before I decided which one to use for the phot…;)
So beautiful! I have never seen such pink hellebores before, but then, this year is the first time I have noticed the doubles, or should I say ‘petticoated’ variety. There are some darker ones I have found growing in a hedgerow in my village, I am wondering about trying to collect some seed to see what I get from them. Lively haiku! Do you know David Elland’s book ‘Fairyality’. Your haiku reminds me of that.
Thnaks Sandra – I can try and collect some seed from mine as well if you like. They take a few years to reach sizeable plants from seed (or plantlet) but then do so when your back is turned!
Sorry, David Elwand http://www.fairie-ality.com
Oh wow – I particularly like the fairie furniture … 🙂
Cathy, what an extraordinary color and form on the hellebore. Wow!
It is a pretty one isn’t it? And yet I tend to overlook it as it is tucked away at the base of the group of 3 silver birches
Yes indeed 🙂
Beautiful!! both words and photos:)
What a great combo!
Such a lovely haiku and the pictures are beautiful too. 😀
Thank you for your kind comments
So well put together Kathy, fabulous subject, idea and haiku.💚💛💜💙❤️
Thnak you Roz – mine will always be plant or garden related in some form
Amazing colour and form on the hellebore (nothing shy and muted here) and your brilliant haiku dances your photo into the next dimension. Wonderful Cathy, thanks.
Thanks Sarah – I would happily fill the woodland edge border with hellebores!
Fabulous haiku. The hellebores are dancing up a storm here too.
Thanks Lisa and I am sure you will be enjoying yours as much as I do mine
That’s lovely and such a good strong pink.
