the hellebore

the hellebore, originally uploaded by slcook52 (busy).

One of the varieties of Hellebore that I have blooming in my garden right now.
These flowers are so pretty, but SO hard to see since they face downward. You basically have to lay down on the ground to appreciate them :)

But I love seeing the buds start on them, sometimes as early as February. It means Spring is on it's way!


  1. Gorgeous and definitely worth lying down to see. :-) Lovely photo Sylvia!

  2. They are gorgeous! One of the plants I'd like to have in my garden...
