I know I've been cranky lately, not to mention negative. So I thought I'd end this week with some pictures of the first flowers starting to bloom here. I love the smell of hyacinths; they are probably my favorite early spring flower. As much as I love tulips, I know better than to try growing them here; the deer like them even more than I do.
Both of these are Hellebores, which are also called Christmas roses, variety unknown.
