Finishing off Hellebores for 2014

I have talked about Hellebores for such a long time this year as they started off flowering early and I was afraid there wouldn’t be much left by the time the workshop came about. Well as you know, they are still strutting manfully in the garden – even with all this rain.

Before I started painting botanically, I never thought that the winter could produce so much beauty. Now I emphasise these magnificent blooms in the garden.

Before going back to talking about the RHS exhibition and how that is going, and the subject of the next workshop, I thought I would include a few of the Hellebores that I have done. There is only one this year, but as you may now know (for those who follow the blog), some of my pictures can take several weeks to do.

    1. Thank you for commenting. We have so many variations in the garden and it us so apt when I was told that they are very permiscuous! I bear this in mind if I am planting a specific colour that I want to maintain and try to plant it not too near other varieties. They generally get their wicked way though.
