                Gorgeous Helebores @NigelJ , love the doubles in photo 2. What is so weird is there is you living in Devon and me in Scotland and my Helebores are also completely out and have been for about 10 days. We should be a good while behind you but not this year, it really has been a pretty mild winter for us in comparison to some humdingers:)

                    As the weather was very dull yesterday I had a quick stroll round the garden. It doesn't really make for good photos but I took some anyway. :)

                    Some Hellebores
                    In a pot by the front door
                    P1320825.JPG

                    In one of our woody areas (snowdrops in the background)
                    P1320840.JPG

                    P1320842.JPG
                    Some more later - I think

                    Witchhazel - lovely scent by the front path
                    P1320830.JPG

                    White heather opposite the witchhazel
                    P1320823.JPG

                    P1320822.JPG

                    This is our clematis Armandii that we planted in our new bed. Just its second season and the first flowers are about to come out. There are loads of them :blue thumb:

                    We have a lot of croci coming out but these are the brightest so far
                    P1320835.JPG

                    Pulmonaria, one of my favourite Spring flowers that blooms for months. Haven't tidied that bed yet :noidea:

                      Sorry about the slightly out of focus shots but the camera couldn't cope with the poor light :sad:

                      Some more of our Hellebore beds

                      P1320848.JPG

                      All these are going to be dug up and either potted up for sale or moved elsewhere (the space is needed for something else)
                      P1320828.JPG

                      Our doubles are usually later but these are already going well
                      P1320850.JPG

                          Fabulous trunk!
                          I can see a dinosaur chewing something and looking to its left where there is a cyclops with their left leg bent back, a very high belly button (!) and arms behind their back.
