If you visit my blog now and again you’ll already know that I love bright colours. However I’m not usually a fan of purplish red and yellow together… but somehow they seem to work in this little jug of spring flowers.
Hellebore season is in full swing. There are so many beautiful plants available to us these days. Many of them come from specialist breeders who are developing new Hellebores with intense colours and unique markings. The Hellebore blooms floating in the shallow bowl of water below are Ashwood Hybrids. If you’d like to know more about Ashwood Nurseries then you may be interested to read about Susan Rushton’s visit. You may also like to visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see some cut flowers from garden bloggers around the world.
This morning I’ve been outside testing my new photoboards again. I simply stood the Barn board behind a hellebore and took a few shots. I used this board both horizontally and vertically to see which I liked the best. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to get images like this. To me this looks like a hellebore growing at the base of an old timber building. What do you think?
