Hellebores are normally an early spring blooming perennial, say March or April, but I discovered this one yesterday poking up through all the leaves in one of my garden beds. Quite an unexpected but very pleasant find for this time of year. It may indicate that nature’s clock is a bit off, but I’m not going to be the one complaining.
I've never really liked labels: I am this, I am that... But in the interest of introducing myself to the world, I can say that I am many things: nurse, writer, photographer, poet, painter, gardener, friend, armchair philosopher, counselor, nature lover, real-estate aficionado, movie buff, sometime yogi, and aspiring world-traveler. I think that's a pretty good list... for now. I want to become a bigger part of the vital, creative force I feel deeply at work in the world and connect with other people who want to do the same.
