    I adore hellebores but they’re reluctant bloomers here. Most don’t show up until spring – whether that’s due to the particular cultivars I’ve planted or the fact that they’re waiting for more rain, I don’t know. I look forward to seeing yours in future vases.

      I’ve occasionally had hellebores open in December but not this year, despite fairly warm days. We’ve had a lot of rain recently. Wish I could share some with you.

      It’s true, they don’t make it easier to photograph. I haven’t trimmed back the old leaves yet, which I know is recommended but it seems weird to leave the buds so exposed. Thanks for noticing the header. Just updated it today with a photographed modified using an app called Waterlogue. So much fun to play with.

      Your hellebores may be not be eager to come out in the snow. One year I had hellebores open in December but January is often likely. It’s unseasonably warm here this year and wet, wet, wet.
