Hellebores

During some post Christmas clearing of branches which had been blown down and around by the seasonal gales I found some treasures — the tips of new life starting to pierce through.

The days are beginning to lengthen and a new year of plant growth and performance beckons.
And among the first to say hello are some of the most beautiful flowers in the garden. Hellebores are now in full bud and many of their flowers are starting to open.
