welcome to GoY marcus, i love that hellebore, beautiful! I dont think the tree is magnolia because they usually have large pink flowers,
i recognise the blossom but im not sure of its name, someone on here will know

Well done Sticki!! Yes, the tree is Amelanchier . . . the lovely blossom doesn't last more than a couple of weeks, but the leaves are very pretty . . .

You've got a good memory, Sticki. Yes, I do love this, and often recommend Nandina when someone wants an evergreen with year-round interest. :))
