Happy Saint Patrick's Day
And here's a lovely green flower which so far has never missed the celebration in this garden: Helleborus foetidus. It's also my favorite hellebore. This is not the only green hellebore blooming in the garden today: I noticed that Helleborus multifidus is also in bloom. And three flowers of Iris tuberosa are open today. Only three: if you're in the mood for the wearin' of the green, I'd better not catch you wearing any of these today!
