My neighbor has this beautiful nodding flower in his front yard called a hellebore. I find it delicate and gentle.
Today is Lag BaOmer, the 33rd day of the Omer. My kids get to go on a field trip tomorrow in honor of this day when Rabbi Akiva’s students stopped dying (2000 years ago?), and some people may get haircuts. The Omer is counted every day from Passover to Shavuot; Shavuot falls on May 19 and May 20 this year. For a fun post on Lag BaOmer, visit Mrs. S.

a romantic shot.congrats
A lonely and delicate flower.
Thanks for posting always for TODAY’S FLOWERS.
Have a good week.
That’s a beautiful shot of the helleobore.
Thanks for the link!
Growing up in the US, Lag BaOmer meant field trips and/or picnics. Here in Israel, Lag BaOmer is all about the ubiquitous bonfires.
Lovely and very delicate flower picture!!
Have a great Lag BaOmer celebration.
The flowers looks like delicate beauties.
I’m sorry, there’s an error in my earlier link. My correct link is here.
Beautiful and delicate flower!

Ah! I very much love hellebores. Which reminds me, I ought to go out and get more photos of mine to help me get through next winter. LOL
Very very pretty! I love hellebores and this one has a very delicate color.
I’ve only just discovered the hellebore, what a lovely flower. Yours is so very pretty, and I love it’s color. Thanks Leora, have a great week.
Very beautiful flower, Leora. Thanks.
Such gorgeous bloom. I love the colours.
Leora: What a neat little flower. I celebrated the Seder while in Austria with some travelling companions.
So pretty! I hope you had a good Lag BaOmer.
This is such a beautiful photo…and you have captured its delicate head, nodding gently downward. The tones are soft and lovely.
such a graceful little flower..I hope it wasn’t too rainy for your lag ba’omer bon fire.
Oh, no bonfires here. Strict fire regulations. Need to travel to Israel for that, the country of bonfires that miraculously does not burn down on Lag BaOmer.
This delicate-looking hellebore would make a fine subject for a watercolor.
I am fond of hellebores – you can get winter flowering and spring flowering ones here. they have such a fragile beauty. x
