This is a beautiful blossom. Great WW, Jams.

I'd like to pluck that blossom and stick it in my hair and then prance around imitating Amy Winehouse.

No, wait a minute. Alas, I don't think they even sell enough black eyeliner around here for me to pull off the Winehouse look.

What a lovely Hellebore... I personally like the 'Nigra' one, which as the name might suggest, is quite dark...
