Each time I have been in the woodland lately, I have been concentrating on the snowdrops and hadn’t realised that the hellebores are later flowering than usual, probably due to the cold spell that we had recently. As I went into the garden today to photograph the hellebores, I promised myself that I wouldn’t take any photos of snowdrops, just hellebores this time, did I succeed ?
This double hellebore is very pretty, dark pink on the outside and pale pink inside.
I think the anemone centred ones are my favourite.
Another anemone centred one.
New last year is Hellebore Neon Star.
Well I couldn’t leave without taking just one could I !
There are so many different sorts of hellebore, each one has its own special charm and they do provide such welcome colour on a cold February day. Are you able to enjoy your hellebores or are you still covered in snow?
