Winter Blossom

I don’t know what this bloom is but is on a plant that’s on my breezeway. I know about 3 to 5 plants by name and this isn’t one of them. My wife alerted me to the bloom earlier today and I thought I would give it shot. It’s not my favorite thing to shoot but the results at least have encouraged me to try more – we’ll maybe anyway!
