I was really happy to receive an email from Robyn, a regular reader here and fellow garden lover, with a few photos of her hellebores that are out now in her garden. I was so inspired by her beautiful shots I popped out into my own garden to grab a few snaps myself, of my own hellebores:
What I most love about hellebores is how divine they are in the depths of winter. While it's just so cold in these parts at the moment the garden is full of spots of beauty where the hellebores pop up:
You may recognise these flowers from some of my past stitchery designs, they are a long standing favourite of mine:
It was very kind of Robyn to put me onto Post Office Farm Nursery who do a mail order service for hellebores! If you feel inclined to pop a few in your own garden (they love a cold winter and a shady spot, they make a magnificent display under big old trees) maybe you might like to have a look at Post Office Farm Nursery yourself:
Thanks for this blog post's inspiration Robyn!
