  1. So nice the Hellebores start flowering again, but such a shame we have to go almost flat on the ground to photograph their inside. Beautiful images, spring is coming!

    1. That's very true, Janneke - the same for snowdrops although ours are raised up behind a approx 0;75m wall so more face to face

  2. A lovely selection. The hellebore I bought in December has been flowering its socks off.

  3. Nice Sue, love the last 2 photos especially. Being seasonally behind you by a few weeks, only got Christmas rose out here and (snap) planned going out with camera when rain stops here. Love hellebores, I do too :-)

    1. Strangely our Christmas rose are only in bud, Shirley - I wonder whether slugs are nibbling the buds before they open

  4. Lovely, I nearly bought one at the weekend but resisted temptation. For practical reasons only as I didn't have a final destination for it.

  5. That's what I'm aiming for, but having bought those plug-plants from Hayloft the other day I think it will be a fair while before I have any as big as yours! I did buy one bigger Hellebore plant because I saw it on sale at a reasonable price, and it had some buds on it, but they show no signs of opening just yet.

    1. I'm guessing they are in the wooded area which will look beautiful when everything comes into flower.
