winter miracle: hellebores

 
 
 Nature always makes sense. That's why this amazing plant with a strange name Hellebores blooms in the winter. Its understated beauty would be lost and not fully appreciated in spring or summer gardens when every plant is screaming: "I am the brightest!". Hellebores, one of the first messengers of spring, is a kind of flower that you want to look closer at, just to become amazed of the color nuances present in a single plant. The one above shows at least a dozen of hues, from pale lime green and yellow to most beautiful dusty pink. I placed this shy beauty on my desk so I can see it closer and enjoy the message: "Hi! I am here to tell you that spring is almost here".
