About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 190,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 3 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!
Christmas rose or hellebore, belongs to the buttercup family, and during the Siege of Kirrha in 585 BC, hellebore was reportedly used by the Greek besiegers unchristianly to poison the city’s water supply.

Romans had helleborosus – someone on a helleborus diet, mad that is.
