    1. The first hellebores always seem to be a turning point for me, Carrie.

  2. I like the pink ones in particular, but welcome any flower at this time of the year!

  3. I know that Hellebores are early risers, but wow - January seems a bit too early. Do they normally bloom this early for you?

    1. It's been fairly mild so far, Jenni but today it's blowing a gale and next week is set to be very cold. Just hope that the forecast is wrong.

  6. I can't get over how some things are so early his year- perhaps explained by the relative mild Winter - and yet other things - in my case snowdrops, are later than last season

    1. The hellebores generally start to flower here in January, Roger. The snowdrops are pushing through too.

  7. Flowers and carrots? My gardens are under a foot of snow. I am a tad jealous.

    1. It's always good when the first flowers of the year open, Ela but winter yet has a few tricks up it's sleeve.
