    Lovely hellebores. I always forget how good they look floating in a pan and how long they can last that way.

    @ Valleys girl.
    You have one like my new seedlings, with a dark ring in the middle.  (top left hand in my bowl) Is it all deep red on the back?   I find the markings on hellebores fascinating.

    So do I but they only sell white flowered ones here and they want 20€ a pot!   I'm waiting for seeds to grow into colourful versions.

Can't win But also he swept pollen from a whiteHellebores onto the one of our Red ones  marks it then some seed shedding time a long way off yet pots them up and we wait to see a new variety grown. it's fun but OH has been doing this for a few years now, try it

    Narcissus 'Tête Bouclé'. New discovery for me. I wouldn’t have thought double daffodils could be so charming.

  • Just pruned osteospernum. Too nice to put in the compost just yet and they last such a long time in a vase. Valerie
