Queen of the Night

Beautiful despite the snow, hail, wind and rain...

Hellebore, Queen of the Night

Saturday, 2 February 2013

At last, a little bit of sunshine at the weekend! I've managed to get outside and start some weeding and tidying. After cutting back Hellebore leaves I found a dozen tiny Hellebore seedlings! It'll probably be a few years before they flower and I find out what colour they are. Still, I'm very pleased to have some self-sown seedlings.

After all the heavy rain and snow the garden's not looking it's best, but there are a few things adding some winter cheer. Bright, crazy-haired grasses and red stemmed dogwoods are catching the low winter sun.
