If you can't beat them...

By Jerra


Morning spent doing the first part of rectifying the caravans water pumping problem.  We needed to pop to our wholesaler for things for the Lodge so we combined it with a visit to the garden centre.

Not the time of year for much in the way of flowers and sadly they have stopped their little animal collection.  Presumably they didn't feel the children appreciated it enough.  Hellebores were by far the commonest plant in flower.  When I was young they were either "Christmas rose" or "lenten roses"  depending on when they flowered.  Modern breeding seems to have greatly extended the flowering season and indeed merged the two.

I think this one was a hybrid called Ice and Roses but I didn't follow my usual practice of photographing the name label so can't be certain.
