I can't get enough of Hellebores. They make me smile. So glad you got flowers for Easter.~~Dee
Looks beautiful. Can one ever have too many spring ephemerals?
I have to plant some of those, that is one I don't have. They are beautiful!!!Happy Easter!!!
I know spring has been a long time coming ... enjoy!
Ooh, aah, the hellebores are all so lovely. Plus the hepatica (where oh where is mine?) and bloodroot (which is in a native garden I once stewarded) are oh so cute to boot. But can we get a better view of that gorgeous striped blue pot behind the daffs? I love cobalt blue! Happy Easter. (I haven't eaten my choccie bunny yet!)
At last...your spring has arrived! It's lovely MMD...most of my favorite spring lovelies are blooming in your garden! gail
What lovely Easter Bonnets for your parade!
Helleborus and Hepatica..... who could ask for better harbingers of Spring, and to see them in your garden.... how wonderful! Happy Spring!
I love those hellebores! I hope your finger heals. I have had one of mine wrapped due to surgery to remove a growth next to and under my fingernail. I have been able to avoid using it when I type, but I'm making a lot of mistakes I have to go back and fix. It has slowed down my gardening some, but not as much as the weather.Happy Easter!
What a glorious Easter parade that's going on in your garden right now!
I must photograph some of my really dark hellebores. They are cool. Love the little anemone. I'll have to get those for next year.
Some lovely blooms and how timely. I hope that your finger is soon up to full typing speed. Take care :)
Sorry about the finger! That is a gardener's nightmare. You will have to elicit help in the garden from the little ones. Anyway, we have the same hellebore shot. The dark red one looks so familiar. Mine are just blooming also and the white flowers have turned pale pink adding another dimension.
Happy Easter! As a veteran of injured fingerness, I am very sympathetic, and hope it heals soon.
I just have one measley hellebore. Must get more. I particularly like the deep burgundy one.Happy Easter yourself! I decided that my post today should be wordless too, but I don't have any excuse. Just wanted the gardens to speak for themselves.
Spring seems to be taking its sweet time this year, but it looks like you've got lots blooming in spite of the chilly weather.Happy Easter MMD!
What beautiful blooms for Easter, or any other time. I hope your finger heals quickly. A bad time of year for any physical impediment.
MMD, Do you give your hellebores special care over the winter? All the leaves were terribly ratty this spring. However, there's a lot of new growth going on, and I think there's a flower about to bloom! :-)
How nice of your garden to put on its Easter finery and bonnets just in time for the weekend! My order of hellebores finally came in, and I managed to plant them just before we left for Arizona. They're small so I don't know if they will bloom this year, but I'm looking forward to seeing their pretty faces in time by next Easter.
That was a beautiful Easter parade. Hope you had a good day and didn't overdose on chocolate!
and they spoke very clearly too!
What a lovely parade of beauties!I hope your finger is getting better...Katarina
that is a nice parade of flowers blooming so early. It's lovely at Squirrelhaven!
Wow, there's a lot of gorgeousness in your garden. The hellebores are beautiful ~ there's such a variety in colour. The daffodils are beautiful and the anemones are gorgeous. Hope your finger is better!
Thanks everyone for your good wishes. The finger is on the mend & I can type again.Dee - Hellebores make me smile too. I guess that's why I have so many.Kathy - as long as there are enough large leaved plants to hide the empty spaces, one can never have too many ephemerals.Lynn - thanks! Yes, plant lots of them.Cindy - once it warms up again, it will be hard to keep me inside.Monica - The blue pot was from Target last year. It's not ceramic, but plastic. I'll post a photo when the yellow Pansies in it come into full bloom.Gail - you have very good taste. :-)Sue - it takes more than a hurt finger to keep us out of the garden.Eal - I love the dark Hellebores. I can't wait to see photos of yours.Layanee - my Helleborus niger have just started turning pink too.HMH - if you wait for nature to take its course, you may have lots more Hellebores next year. Little tiny seedlings, but still Hellebores.Rose - it's worth the wait.
Hi MMD,Your Hellebores are fantastic! Ours are up and greening up but no signs of blooms yet. For some reason ours seem to bloom in late May or early June (perhaps it's the shady exposures?) and they're still getting established. We still don't have any daffodils blooming yet either, but soon I hope ... I did see some buds coming on a few of them last weekend so it shouldn't be much longer. Next I suppose you'll be showing off tulips while we wait patiently for ours to do something! :-)
I love Hellebores. So beautiful. I can only admire them in pictures 'cause they don't agree with Malaysia's climate. Bummer.
Lovely Blooms MMD :) 'Ice Follies' is one of my favourites too!
IVG - I had one Hellebore bloom last July, but it was a freak. The ones on the north side of the house do bloom a bit later than the others, but only by about a week.Blossom - thanks for visiting! It seems we always want what we can't grow.VP - I'm starting to want an 'Ice Follies' type Daffodil that's all yellow. (I guess I have too many white ones.)
