We call this Lenten Rose, because it blooms in Lent. It's also named Helleborus. It blooms in my backyard every winter about this time. Last year it kept right on blooming half way through summer.
Scriptor Senex is on the other side of the pond and he has one blooming too. He calls it a Christmas Rose and I think his is a little bigger and brighter than mine.
Shutter Sisters has a 100 Step Challenge up. You are to get up and walk 100 steps and then take a picture. My 100 steps took me right to the back of the yard where this beauty lives. Nice, how that worked out.
I took photos all through 2007-09 for Project 365 to post at least one photo a day. Now that my oldest son is in the Air Force we are using this photo blog to share our adventures with him across the miles.
