Hellebores, Primroses, Periwinkle and a Cherry Blossom Wreath

Happy floral Friday and welcome to the first "this week in my Maryland garden" post for 2016! This is the first week I've had enough flowers in the yard for posting. The hellebores have been blooming for a while but until this week they've been the only flowers in our yard. Most hellebore flowers droop downwards. I propped this one up with a lilac branch so you can see the pretty hellebore face.

 The first primroses of 2016 are blooming. Just two so far but more have buds.

 Pretty purple-blue periwinkle (also called vinca) is also popping up here and there.

 Here's an artsy take on the burgundy hellebore flower.

These are artificial flowers but they remind me of spring and I love cherry blossoms. It's my favorite front door wreath so far. Sorry it's through the screen door but you get the general idea.

Happy almost spring! Thank you for visiting! May God bless you this season and always!
