Spring Blooms (and a little Consternation!)
At any rate, I feel in need of a distraction, and what better than the promise of spring. Mind you, the temperature is hovering at zero today, and the forecast suggests the possibility of snow just past the weekend. Meanwhile, though, these blooms won't be stopped. Mahonia japonica, another of the fragrant flowers that brighten my winter. . . .
And various types of hellebore are springing up all over the yard.
and this Helleborus corsicus is almost there as well, sprawling right across our path as it does because I misjudged its future size when I planted it many years ago.
