Flowers in winter

I don’t know the name of these flowers and consequently, the name of the bush but if there is one it must be something related with “heaven” or “miracle”.

When everything is frozen, when there are no more leaves on the trees and the landscape is dead, here it is. The cutest little flower ever - at least in winter.

These flowers are tiny. As buds they are pink and as soon as they open the colour change in to pure white. From far away you’d think they are snowflakes. Their fragrance is very subtle with notes of anise and I think it intensifies when the sun shines.

As I said. Something like a miracle.
