In a Vase on Monday: For Fear of Being a (helle)Bore….

Yes, it’s Monday again and I am joining Cathy at Rambling in the Garden with her lovely meme where we are invited to plonk something from our gardens into a vase to share each week. And, as the title suggests, I am using hellebores AGAIN!

I have tucked them all tightly into my hare jug.

They are starting to fade a little, giving them that shabby vintage look. What’s more, as they age, they last longer in a vase. So fingers crossed….

My various attempts at keeping newly opened hellebores fresh in a vase this winter produced no conclusive result, except that – as is often the case with gardening – it is a matter of luck. 😉

We have had such a nasty cold spell, with heavy frosts. But some warm sunny days are ahead. So it made sense to use the hellebores while they are still looking perky. Today is still chilly, but look at that blue sky in the background. 😃

Do go and visit Cathy’s blog and see what she and others are sharing in their vases today. Why not join in?

Happy gardening!
