Fuyusoubi (winter rose)

Carpe Diem #893 Fuyusoubi (winter rose)

The Christmas Rose is the name given to a variety of hellebore that bloom in the dead of winter.  The hellebore graced the walkway edges with deep green leaves through out the long cold winters.  Though not a Christmas rose hellebore, the sister, Lenten, was a beauty, also.
