    Thought I would add ony of my Helleborus. Not as elegant as @Logan 's but a nice flower for winter.

    I just checked my yard for signs of spring. Nada in the flower/bulb department, but the buds on the Rhodie's & magnolias are fat.

    The birds are fat too!! I'm filling the feeders daily. I kid you not.

    Lovely crocus, @Logan. Are they the C. tommasinianus species or a hybrid?

    Thought I recognized it. Lovely plant, but they don't call it the stink-Helleborus for nothing. Do they self-seed all over your garden? They do that here, and now I have three big ones and numerous small ones I'm trying to find new homes for.

    I don't think that they're a hybrid, they were some free bulbs that I had many years ago.

    I can't stand hellebore foetidus Droopy. I put as many on the compost heap as possible (or bonfire) they are a pain !!

    I quite like them. They make a nice backdrop for more colourful blooms, and they're early bloomers which is good for the insects. I also like their foliage. They're decorative all year.
