Hellebore Huddle


Guess what flowered on my second night of four? The Christmas rose has flowered, on three out of six plants. Do they talk to each other in a Hellebore huddle? Ok today we three will flower at the same time.
I was outside checking the garden with bleary eyes. The white cup flower glows ghostlike in the morning light, with golden centres.
I will photograph them after nights in good light.I hope all your gardening weekends are good. I am waiting for the African Bag Gardens to be delivered hopefully today.
Good things come (Or Three flowering Hellebores) to those who wait :)

Oh you have Hellebores blooming! They're beautiful, and I love your little robin too. We won't see our American version of the robin for quite a while yet I'm afraid. Glad you're enjoying some flowers David, while we are seeing only a snowy landscape outside.

Hi Kerri,Long time no hear.I was just thinking about you the other day.Its been wet and mild so far this year. Not snowy like some of the USA states.The Hellebores are beautys when they finally flower!
The robin is a daily visitor and even sits on the fence when I am out in the garden.

Oh, such lovely hellebores! I really hope mine will bloom this year. They should, as they have matured into a nice little clump in their third year.

I have my fingers crossed for you Kylee that your Hellebores will flower.I have some Black flowered ones in a seed pot hopefully to germinate.They are quite difficult to raise from seed so fingers crossed for me too.
