That is a hellebore,flumpy - large heads like a dahlia this one has but none of the  speckles pink ones usually have.  It is a beauty though.

No snow in Bristol nor even frost where i am on the edge of Gloucestershire.  Snowdrrops increasing by the day!   Daffodils in full bloom next door where my neighbours used to bring the bulbs back from their holidays in the Scilly Isles and plant them in their front garden.

Beautiful weather in Bristol so i have been out in my garden with my camera oohing and aahing !  So many lovely flowers especially snowdrops, cyclamen and hellebores and wonderful display of catkins.  The squirrels shoulsd be well fed this year.
