  4. Gorgeousness! I LOVE hellebores, and these are so beautifully captured!

    I'm in hellebore heaven here, too. Many of our new varieties planted last summer are just blooming now, as well as some mutts that have been naturally conceived over the years. . . I was just about to put up some photos of them over on the MFG's blog, which I will quickly do before collapsing into bed. : )

    Hope all is well!

    xxoo,

    Jaime

  5. I often think Hellebores have an almost "orchid like" appearance close up inside the flower head....Enjoy your Valentine's Day x

  7. Beautiful! Hellebores are so interesting. And all the more enticing because you have to work a little to see their lovely faces.

  9. Hi Belinda,

    I planted some hellebores in our garden but they've not flowered yet. All leaf and no prettiness! I' wondering if I've planted to shallowly.

    Yours look BEAUTIFUL! Definitely worthy of a Valentine's day post!

  13. I am learning so much through seeing other's photography. What enticing photos of these flowers (that I can see are called hellebores). I cannot wait to get out there and discover beauties like this with my camera. Wonderful photos!
