A bit of cheer amidst the gloom!


My Sister took these in our back garden last week

It makes the garden so much brighter to have late winter blooms out



Any guesses as to what they are?




Here's an easy one for you!

Hellebore? Plus a snowdrop?

Weeds?

Beccy said...

Well I know the snowdrop but that's all!

Sylv said...

snowdrops and crocusses are out here as well, is the top one a passion flower? I am not very good with 'just' flowers,i only plant edible stuff:)

Smashing photos John......how about chatting up sis to take some more of the garden?

Hmm I was going to say the same as brom but I am glad I didnt now as I see it would have been foolish with you anticipating and all.
As for that Jayne chatting up your sis.
Late twice in one post. Damn.

Good lord. You have FLOWERS? In FEBRUARY? FLOWERS?

Sorry. No hope of me identifying them. I'm too dumbfounded... flowers???

How do we know said...

I think they are hellebore? We have a load in our garden which are also in flower and look beautiful.

They are huge man eating plants I think - either that or you were really close! Did they roar or chomp at all?

We had crocuses out in the first week in January and now the whole place is full of daffs!

I was going to say primulas but guess they are hellebores. They are truly beautiful.
