Bergenia and Hellebore – both are in bud this early in the season! The sun was shining yesterday, a warm 45 degrees F (just over 7 degrees C), as compared to a cool 45 degrees when the sun is not out. Interesting, isn’t it, how the same number of degrees can feel so different to one’s body depending on the sun?
There is also a white-flower hellebore, almost adjacent to this pink-flower one, but its buds are not as developed as these pink ones are. I will have to keep my eyes open for an example of a white flower opening before its colored counterparts.
