First bloom of the year – hellebore

Hel-lo hellebore!

I forgot all about you, and it was just out of a sideways glance that I saw you blooming yesterday in that soupy, muddy muck that is our front yard.

You’re demure, and quiet. And poisonous as can be. Hellebores are known to be one of the classic poisons, alongside nightshade, hemlock and aconite.

Known for your zing-ability inside poison tip arrows, I have no interest in that part of you. But I do appreciate the power lurking inside you, there – so bright faced on the ground.

You trickster.
