Hellebores

As I said yesterday, the hellebores are doing fairly well. Sort of. One of them is a bit of a cheat as we bought it just a few weeks back (half price at the garden centre) and almost immediately needed it to house a deceased rat (as mentioned here). It was already in full flower when we bought it so I can’t claim any credit whatsoever. It sits next to the skimmia in a pot which we bought for another rat – the two were cagemates so it seems only fair that they should stay together.

Don't they make a lovely couple?

It’s a very pretty one:

The bed at the end of the garden must suit hellebores, unlike the one next to the greenhouse, where they just seem to rot. I might have to take a deep breath and move some of them when the weather improves.
