These very pale pink/green were the first that went into the garden. The original plant came from my mother's garden who in true gardener fashion got it from her mother. The darker pinks came a few years later. All are very hardy. I think that the type that I have are Helleborus orientalis. There are many new hybrids of the hellebore in the nurseries and perhaps I will add to the collection.
With the weather is getting a little warmer the garden is showing signs of Spring growth and for just a little while there will be a lovely display of blossom to go with the hellebores.
First the plum trees and then the apricot, the quince and apples will follow a bit later.
These too have multiplied and pop up everywhere.
