A hellebore flower

Have hellebores become fashionable this year or have I just noticed people talking about them for the first time?

One of my colleagues was telling me her garden is full of them, all different flower colours and size stems. In the meantime, I thought I would have to wait till next year for any flowers in my front garden.

But hey, what’s this? I was greeted by this beauty on my way out this morning.

Shame that next to it was this:

I’m hoping the bag is empty!

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

  1. I’m often appalled that peoples think it’s ok to clean up after their dog and then toss it for someone else to deal with. The fact that this is in your garden is appalling. Hellebores sound charming. I’m glad you have some early blooms.

    What a beautiful hellebore! I love them and have a few in my garden. I hope the bag is empty, too. Aren’t people horrid, chucking their rubbish in other people’s gardens?

  3. We have hellebores all over. I’ve even seen loaded poop bags hanging from trees in the forest.

    Lovely colour hellebore. I have a white one in the shop planters that is in bloom: it looks lovely with the snowdrops just now
