Well what can I say about how SURPRISED I am to be the benefactor of a totally different hellebore that I would not have shopped for .. it was not on my wish list what so ever !
I want to thank Barry from "Teza's Hortus Magnificum , who is a sweetheart, for letting me know what this unusual hellebore is.Yesterday was just too sunny to believe .. we haven't had many of those days .. so picture taking was a bit too bright .. however with rain almost every other day I just had to capture more shots of this little darling?
It is a very delicate looking little character .. but I know it will grow up to be big and strong in a few years .. showing off those freckles every chance it gets?
Part of the unusual attraction is the colouring on the back of the petals .. which is nice since it is a down facing flower ... you get to enjoy the pretty scene backwards ?
These pictures don't do it justice .. but my story had to be told and a "thank you" to Barry as well!
