To celebrate Valentine’s Day I made an apple strudel….
😉 …. and cut my first Hellebores. I was also able to use a new vase – or should I say ‘set of vases’ – for the first time. 😃
The three glass vases are suspended in a wooden frame. It was a fairly cheap online purchase and I am rather pleased with it.
The Hellebores are unknown as the labels turned out to be incorrect, except for the middle one, which is ‘Early Red’ – one of the ‘Ice ‘n’ Roses’ collection. It actually looks more pink in this photo.
A few slightly warmer days recently have encouraged some plants to start sending up tentative shoots. But the nights are still frosty and the wind very chilly, so these hellebores are the only thing flowering to date, apart from the Witch Hazel I planted last spring:
The weak sun hasn’t managed to bring out the scent yet, but it looks pretty anyway.
Why not visit our host Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what she has found for a vase today.
Have a good week!
