TODAY´S FLOWER

Helleborus Niger
"Christmas Rose"


The legend tells that this flower sprouted in the snow
from the tears of a little girl because she didn´t have
a gift for the Christ child in Betlehem.

  5. Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I am even more amazed about the rose - so delicate and looks so lovely in the snow. I hope they make it through the snow! I pictured it is being pretty cold in Sweeden in the winter, that's why I did not picture such a pretty flower still flowering. All my flowers are gone :-(

  14. Underbar bild Randi!
    Jag har läst en annan legend att det var en ängel, som lät julrosen blomma tilll den lilla gråtande herdeflickan Madelon, som tog med sig julrosen som gåva till det nyfödda jesusbarnet.
    Ha en fortsatt trevlig 4:e advent!

  26. En vacker vit julros står verkligen som en symbol för den vita vintern som vi fått och som en kontrast mot den röda julen. Hoppas att du får en fin och underbar jul...och tänk snart blir det ljusare igen.
    Kram!

  34. Hi Randi, I am back again! I did a little more investiation on this flower, and someone told me it was poisonous, like poisen ivy. I.e. if you touch it with your hands your skin has a bad reaction. Have you noticed this to be a problem?

  35. Joyeux noel à toi et toute ta famille ! ;-))
