Hellebore close up
When we moved 4 years ago, I brought with us a tiny Hellebore plant from the garden in Allanton, hoping that it was one with red flowers. It lives in a container in our 'yard, and turned out to be a Helleborus orientalis - it's been in flower for a couple of months now. Usually, you can see only the stem and bottom of the flowers, as they're so heavy that they tilt towards the ground. A shame, as they're so beautiful.
