Helleborus - Snow is Dancing...

Yesterday I wanted to look at the mysterious Helleborus - the Winter Rose. Its strange, delicate flowers defy the plummeting temperatures, but with its incredibly spiky leaves that are also somewhat toxic, this resistance is not so surprising. As I had come across Debussy's La Neige Danse by chance, that morning, I tried to put the images and music together...

                                                         Art Poétique - Verlaine
                               De la musique avant toute chose,
                               Et pour cela préfère l'Impair
                               Plus vague et plus soluble dans l'air,
                               Sans rien en lui qui pèse ou qui pose.
