I’d call this Week of Flowers — the brainchild of Cathy at Words and Herbs — a big success! Although it’s been challenging to keep up with posting daily this week and to consistently visit blogs of participating gardeners, the beautiful blooms shared have been such a pleasure to behold. Thank you, Cathy and all participants!
On this final day, I’m sharing some of the very next blooms we have to look forward to in early 2021 here at Coppertop: Hellebores! I grow about a dozen varieties of Helleborus orientalis on the shady north side of our home, including lots of doubles hybridized in the U.S. These photos were taken in February and March 2020, and as I’ve mentioned before, it’s a bona fide hellebore photo when the gardener’s supporting hand is glimpsed!
