A bit more progress outside but its slow and still it rains, never ever remember seeing Hellebore buds rotting on the stems before,singles are pretty well out, doubles are lagging behind.


This close up of the previous picture clearly shows the green petals at the base of the flower,the coloured part being similar to a bract

Next two are delicate doubles

This deep one like most other singles have come from seed,some self sown

This is a self seedling that has grown next to a white probably its mother

This is a nice white seedling flowering for the first time

Here the word virginal comes to mind with a few blemishes

My lovely yellow is suffering its almost to wet to lift its head

He is still keeping an eye on me,perhaps he wants to take a picture,more likely something to eat

For a change some cyclamen coum

And a few double snowdrops
Enjoy

Even my new ones are still in tight bud just as they were when I got them weeks ago......oh! well I live in hope. You have a beautiful selection there Brian. I think Jamie is asking you "how much longer you going to make us stay out in the cold?"

Lovely photos of beautiful flowers. It's well worth taking the time to look at flowers properly and its nice that you take the time to explain what we are seeing. I had not realised that this is another coloured bract plant. I had a close look at some of my photos and was able to spot the 'petals'. Thank you for sharing.

It has taken me years to get any to grow in my garden Bjs, having now succeeded I have planted a mixed selection only two weeks back, pleased to say they are all doing well, if they reward me like yours do for you then I`ll be a very happy gardener....
Lovely blog, I think by the expression on his face that Jamie wants your attention please!!!!!!!!!

Beautiful flowers to brighten another cold rainy morning

I was thinking back, in early may last year around the time of my birthday the drought broke with torrential rain, thats 9 months ago, we had a few sunny or dry days since then but I cannot remember a week without rain in all that time

Definitely a food related look,he only has one other look and that means Play.
Cyclamen have hardly opened in the garden here,the one shown in the picture is under cover.

Cool! :-) Nice helleborus collection!

Lovely to see mature clumps of hellebores like this Brian :) Seeing them rotting on their plants in the rain ....terrible...doesn't exactly fill one with hope for the season to come does it? Ach well, Que sera, sera ...nothing we can do about it. We'll just have to wait and see what comes along next.
