Number Two?

It's going to be a toss-up for the second flower to bloom in our still-wintery garden (snow flurries are predicted for this evening): Cyclamen coum is just getting ready to open a few flowers, and Shibateranthis pinnatifida, with its tiny flowers looking at this stage about as attractive as an old coat in the back closet, is trying gamely to pretend that the weather is no problem.

shibateranthis???? Wow, that's some handle for such a tiny flower.

It's pretty in a way.
It'll look better when it opens. I know what you mean about the name; the flowers are about 1/4' across.
