One of the few plants that seem to have weathered the frost of last week are the hellebores. I saw these blooming at Smith Plantation weeks ago and they are still thriving now. Where most of the early Spring bloomers were withered by the cold weather, these beauties don’t seem to mind. It is nice to see that not everything got crushed by the cold snap.
In this image, I decided to focus on just a small section of the petals to get the pattern and color as well as the detail of the veining. Set against the bright spring-green behind it, I thought this made an interesting combination.
