My Hellebors are just starting to bloom, delayed because of all the snow. I love the little Daffodils. MB

Flower shops are a great place to look for colour this time of year. ;-)

Love the color of this delicate flower.

Barbara said...

I will have to post my todays flower off of a shot I took last spring or summer as none of mine are yet ready to show their smiling faces. This Hellebor is lovely.
Have a great weekend

Very beautiful and how prettily they are displayed. One can get good ideas and naturally it is very tempting to buy.
Happy days, Maria.

Hallo Maria,
ja Helleborus schön wie ein Orchidee.
Der Wintr hat sich bei uns grad verabschiedet und die ersten Schneeglöckchen stecken die Spitzen aus der Erde.
Gruss Hartmut

The combination of creamy white and green is so eyecatching. Aren't spring flowers so wonderful for raising one's spirits?

Ces said...

Great shots.

Thanks for the visit, Maria!
As for your question about Santiago de Compostela I must say I have been there for several times and that I have already wandered around some of the paths that from the north of Portugal lead there but, to be honest, I never walked there. Only by car!

So lovely!

Tammie Lee said...

Lovely images and flowers. We get hellebores in the wild here. Taking macro shots of them I noticed the green part near the center of the petal is raised and in the shape of a heart. Nature is full of wonderful surprises.

Arija said...

Wonderful virginal white of your Helleborus, they look almost like Philadelphus. Lovely photos Maria.

Sandra said...

Wow - you are lucky to have a flower shop so near. Thank you for your visit and greetings from Croatia.

Luiz Ramos said...

RuneE said...

Ah - I'll have to wait a bit for that, Sigh.

PS My hard disk bloomed in 2007...

I love the summer feeling in your photos! Thanks for visiting my blog! Today we got 20 cm snow, but it's not so cold so it'll probably disappear in a few days.

Inkivääri said...

Wau, you have spring there - so beautiful are those hellebores!

...ich glaub, ich muss umziehen... :), bei Dir bricht der Sommer und der Frühling gleichzeitig aus und bei uns ist das übelste graueste Wetter, das man sich vorstellen kann :). Nicht mal geeignet für Fotos! Welch hübsche Frühlingsblümchen, so zart, so zerbrechlich und so frisch, einmalig schön! Danke für den Frühling im Winter, das tut unglaulich gut!

Raven said...

Your hellebores are just lovely one of my favourite flowers. I have never seen it here in just plain white so thanks for posting it.

Darla said...
