Not quite that cold, but chilly nevertheless. Here's what's in flower in the perennial garden today:

Hellebores are cool.

Very nice, Eric.

A real pick-me-up.

As Rouge indicates, we'd have to break through an ice crust before we could dig the snow off our hellebores.

eric_oh - thanks for sharing. I went walkabout my garden beds a couple of days ago and noted I've got Hellebore/Lenten rose buds on at least one of my plants so am excitedly looking forward to them blooming when February/March rolls around. Doesn't appear to be the spectacular show they put on this year but it might be a bit early to give up on them.
