A variety of helleborus were in full bloom, these "lenten rose" lived up to their name since we're in lent right now I think. I should probably get one for my yard since they make great evergreen leaves and large perennial blooms when everyone else just has crocus and daffodil.
So, in addition to the great helleborus show, here are a few other notable features that caught my eye:
|Coral bells holding color all winter, looks like they even put out some new leaves this Spring, bright lime green.|
|Winter aconite babies spreading like crazy (Eranthis heymalis)|
|Pachysandra ground cover flowering, or Japanese Spurge (Pachysandra terminalis)|
