This sweet Helleborus blossom appeared in my garden a few year’s ago. A seedling from who knows which hellebore. Of course it has H. orientalis in its chlorophyll lines, yet all the ones I grow don’t have the two-toned affect or speckling like this one.

Let Me Call You Sweetheart

She most likely will never be a star, never sold in a gazillion garden centers across the nation. I just like her quiet little beauty; she can be a star in a corner of my garden.

What should I name her? A barbershop-style song “Let Me Call You Sweetheart” keeps rolling around in my head. The song was published in 1910 and has been redone by various artists. The lyrics:

Let me call you sweetheart
I’m in love with you
Let me hear you whisper that you love me too
Keep the lovelight glowing in your eyes so true
Let me call you sweetheart
I’m in love with you
Let me call you sweetheart
I’m in love with you
Let me hear you whisper that you love me too
Keep the lovelight glowing in your eyes so true
Let me call you sweetheart
I’m in love with you.’Whispering Light’, Lovelight’, or ‘Glowing Eyes’ would be lovely names. One song, brought many names to mind. Maybe her name could be, ‘Let Me Call You Sweetheart’.

What would you name her?
