  1. Helen Johnstone says:

    My hellebores seem to have been at this stage for ages – I am willing them to open

    • Cathy says:

      And I thought they were sluggish this year, Helen, but checking back on GBBD there were none in Jan 14 but lots by Feb – so perhaps we shouldn’t be willing them to open as we both are doing!

  2. Christina says:

    Worth the wait, though!

    It looks like you are about a week or so ahead of my hellebores.

  4. Cathy says:

    Mine have been there for ages too – but I love them at all stages. Thanks for posting!

  5. I have hellebores and sweatbox in bloom…This is all slightly ahead of schedule. I was surprised when someone told me today that spring officially starts in 41 days.

  6. Anna says:

    Those buds are full of anticipation Cathy just like us waiting to sow seeds 🙂

    • Cathy says:

      Oh yes indeed – but I have gone through my seeds and put them in approx month order, so I am working towards sowing them…. although I have added to them today with half price ones from our local garden centre which now need to be sorted…

    I have lots at this stage too. But in one part of the garden they have been in bloom for ages. I don’ t know where they came from, they were here when we arrived. They are not the most exciting colours, in fact they are a bit wishy- washy, but they are welcome for being so very early. And do you have any Eric- smithii? They are always out nice and early.

    • Cathy says:

      I have 3 ericsmithii seedlings as you may have read in the GBFD post, but otherwise not, unless the original Winter moonbeam is hanging on in there. Do you think your wishy washy ones may be self seeded ones? Perhaps they are hardier if they are, and flower earlier – just a thought. They would be welcome here too, whenever they flower and whatever their colour!

  8. Im waiting impatiently for mine to open! Some should be the same gorgeous shade of pink as yours. An Ashwood hybrid – what else!
