Thought i better take a few in the garden as a change from Peter Rabbit so here goes.
Remember my lovely pink Camellia its fighting back


This is a new Hellebore to me Harvingons Double Red,Bit of artistic licence in this description quite nice but Red it is not.


Another Hellebore this colour is spot on don’t come any whiter.


A few snowdrops not as valuable as the E bay one.
This is Galatea a good strong one.


Double Nivalis and a single


Early Crocus always welcome


Finally for now a few more hellebore’s these are self seeded plants a few of many


Enjoy

That Helleborus is not red, but double red. As the label declares :)

That last one is beautiful. Nice to see such a good group of crocus and the snowdrops are little treasures.

Brian they are lovely, the Hellebores are especially so, I think the birds are already attacking my crocus, little beggars...

I love the Helibores. Makes me envious. I have two a pink and a white (the most common types). So far I have not seen any other varieties for sale here in Hungary. At the moment they are all totally buried in snow but I hope to see them again soon. Our Spring is always later than yours.

lovely to see some colour coming through Brian, nothing in my garden as yet, always ahead of us up north haha

Good pics and blog. Out of interest did you plant the Crocus close together or are they a few years growth? They look better bunched up than single specimens in your photo.

I would have planted a small group not more than ten about 8 years ago there must be hundreds there now,possible they should be split up but have lots of trouble establishing them as I have major problems with Squirrel eating them and lots of other plants.
They chewed a 3 year old species Primula to the ground yesterday,I was not happy.

I have just received a beautiful collection of Hellebore seeds from Brian. Hopefully the plants will grow also in our drier and hotter climate. If everything goes well, next February you will find here photos of my new Hellebores :))) Many thanks, Brian.
