Christmas rose

Andre, Black And White Photography, Photography

Christmas time means winter and thus we have cold weather, snow, ice-covered lakes and rivers. Temperature are far below 0°C (32°F).

But, this tiny plants are blooming in this uncomfortable time of the year. It’s called Christmas or snow rose (Helleborus niger), because of the blooming time. 

This year’s summer was extremely hot and dry. Over summer, many plants died because of the lack of water. Also the Christmas rose. All leaves were laying flat on the ground. There was no hope of seeing any blossoms this year or even see the Christmas rose surviving this hard time. The image above is from last winter.

But, surprisingly, the leaves are standing upwards again and many white blossoms are currently blooming 😳 What a surprise!

More of my images can be seen at my own blog.
