Almost


This beauty, currently in my side yard, is called a Christmas rose (Helleborus Niger). It usually blooms in the middle of the snow near the end of January. Our snow is gone, and these were a little late, but perfectly timed to give us a taste of the Spring that is coming. Thank you, Momma Nature. We needed that:)
