Hellebores!

I don't seem to have much to post creatively at the moment but it is always a joy at this time of year to see the garden treasures popping up around the garden. These hellebores (winter roses) are a bit of a rogue in my garden. I can never quite understand why they are so expensive in the garden centres. This is part of the back bank and they are prolific seed producers. If you look carefully you will see the seed pods in the centre of the flowers. This bank is quite steep and I have let them reproduce to cut down on maintenance because even in the winter, their leaves are quite attractive. I do have to spray the tiny seedlings to keep them from completely taking over and choking out some of the other plants - like my flag irises. I am hoping to see them flowering in the next month or so
