Today's Flowers: Winter beginning to end

We had a small wet snow on Thursday morning and I decided to see if the camellias were doing alright.
They are still in the early bud stage and don't seem to have much if any damage.
I like the way buds and flowers look with a little snow on them.
It warmed up and since Thursday we've had pretty cold nights but much warmer days. I shot my helleborus this Saturday and it's close to blooming.
Soon spring will be arriving and in the meantime it looks like next week we will have some spring like days. Click for the home of Today's Flowers.

Do lado de cá do equador, pelo menos inde moro, não vejo neve, e acho incrível com estas flores em botão resistem à uma neve assim. Lindas fotos!
