Photos were taken in my yard from March 5 to 7, 2016, and show, from top to bottom, flowers of hellebores, anemone, winter daphne, and tazetta narcissus. This year, we see only a small number of hellebores flowers. The day before yesterday I counted them to be nine (here is a photo when we had much hellebores flowers).
