It got very PINK .. at times .. you could say "blushing sky" ?
Then finally very subtle .. as in "lets get on with the day !"
So .. it is almost all about hellebore now and how gorgeous they are becoming : )
This one is most likely Royal Heritage .. yes, there can be a slight degree of possible doubt .. I was in a bit of a fluster when I planted some gorgeous ones my friend sent me .. to this day I am her slave for such a kind gift she gave me .. but don't tell her that !!
The bottom picture is my steadfast FIRST hellebore .. all the tag said was Lenten Rose Orientalis .. no further identification .. it has almost slate gray blue flowers and as you can see it has many of them .. I chopped this baby back severely last month and it always comes back wonderfully ..
Baby "Golden Lotus" ... I was so afraid it wouldn't take with our wicked winters .. I mulched it as high as I could without smothering it .. I may not get flowers this year but I know it has taken .. so far ?
How amazing is the veining with these beauties ? It is almost like you can see blood pumping through them ?
The buds are even that way !
Baby-in- waiting ?
Ivory Prince took like a charm .. a bit of crispy foliage but I can cut that out and fresh leaves will come.
This is for Deborah "Green Theater" who asked about "London Fog" .. it is just foliage right now Deborah but I am thinking it will flower eventually !
OK .. I had to take a Spring flower picture with this little guy leaning up against my rusty garden stake .. cute right ?
