Beautiful! :)). I'm so sorry to hear that many of your plants have drowned. It's really gutting, especially for someone who loves their plants like you. I just hope and pray that you don't get this next winter as well. :(((

Bloomer and Cinders many thanks, K thanks for that, we will either have to change where the Hellebores are grown, or dig in lots of organic matter, we put them in the heavy soil, not expecting them to be waterlogged!! which they hate! you cannot win, sometimes lol but we will not be beaten!!

Lovely one Dottydaisy, although most of mine I grown in the garden, I do put a few in plastic hanging baskets, then you look up to admire the lovely blooms. Will put a pic on my page tomorrow.

This one is a lovely dark blue. It's very nice. I was only thinking today that as my garden is on the side of a hill and slopes down mostly my summer plants have done better for all the rain during the winter. My garden usually dries out too quickly. I do feel very sad for all of you who have beautiful gardens and are waterlogged.

I'll just say ditto to all the above!

A Real beauty. These dark sorts are quite rare, arenĀ“t they? I have lot of Hellebores with developed leaves, but no flowers yet, I do not know why...

What a fab-u-lous dusky colour - like it a lot! :o)))

Thanks Petal, it makes a change from the pastels, Katarina there are a lot more of the darker varieties now...
Amy the very same thing has happened to some of ours, the weather I guess!!. Gralew the soil is just too heavy where they are planted, we will remedy that later on this year.....
Pamd, good idea to grow them up high, so much easier to photograph lol
Many thanks Bathgate and HB, our soil is different all over the garden the sides are different from the bottom of the garden and the middle is different from the front, quite a challenge!!
