Hellebores...







Taaa-Daaaa...

The first blossoms in my 2016 garden...

Hellebores are wonderful.  They start to flower in the middle of winter and the flowers last a few months.  It is nice to see them blooming when everything else is still asleep.  These flowers are not quite open today.  It depends on the temperature.  It's about 35 degrees today.  When it is warmer,  they open up more.



This one is Helleborus 'Pink Frost'.


It is nice because it has a unique silver evergreen 
foliage, which provides a year round interest.



And so it goes...

still about 5 weeks 'til Spring is officially here.  I'm having a hard time waiting... me and everyone else!

'Til next time,  Love ya,  Jean

I am so jealous. I went around our yard this weekend I did not see anything yet growing. I know it will soon and cannot wait.
