Hellebores, or Lenten flowers, were the topic of a master gardeners class last week at the Gainesville branch of the Hall County Library System.

Following the saying of “March showers bring April flowers,” the Hall County Library System will host a spring gardening series at the Gainesville branch this month.

Presentations will be from noon to 1 p.m. every Wednesday in the meeting room of the Gainesville library.

The first class was on “Hellebores, Winter’s Late Flower.”
