Something's going to bloom!
What's this? A plant against the back wall is doing something spectacular. Will it bloom?
Last summer, my neighbor gave me a bunch of these, and said they would look good against my back wall. So that's exactly where I put them. She said it was euphorbia. But I didn't think it was, because my euphorbia looked much different. And now they are going to bloom.
Is it Helebore? I do think that's what it is! I shall wait and see.
"Lo, how a Rose e'er blooming
from tender stem hath sprung!
Of Jesse's lineage coming,
as those of old have sung.
It came, a floweret bright,
amid the cold of winter,
When half spent was the night."
