lenten rose and crocus

11 Mar

I’ve been off-line for a few days with server issues but the early flowers have continued to show their faces.  Lenten Rose (helleborus), often the earliest flower in the garden, will not be stopped by a little snow.  It will continue to produce flowers throughout the Spring; its leaves stay green throughout the winter, only turning brown in Spring when they are replaced by new leaves.
