Here is the Lenten Rose (Hellleborus orientalis) I re-discovered. They like full to partial shade and were almost hidden which is one reason I've overlooked them this year; the colors are delicate and soft. Not the best picture of them.
I've been busy folding fabric, not putting it away, just straightening it up. I'm still drawing from this large stack, but in the resulting chaos of cutting a bit from this one or that one, looking for another red, or for a polka dot, or for the right piece for the roof the pile on my cutting table had grown.
As I've folded and stacked, I've been listening to NPR on line: Roger Angell talking about his stepfather E.B. White and White's recently published letters and another interview with Angell on the writing life; Fifty Years of The Cat in the Hat; Fiona Ritchie of Thistle and Shamrock being interviewed on All Songs Considered discussing Celtic music. It is much easier to clean up while listening.
