GPAP – Frosty the Hellebore

Icy hellebore (5)

This photo was taken last January in Spotty Dotty’s garden.  The emerging hellebore has been caught by frost, its back crystalline with cold.  But these are tough customers and it shrugged it off in the lukewarm winter sunshine.  In the weeks that followed we enjoyed a plethora of double white flowers, which later freely seeded under its petticoats.  Another lovely memory.

  1. Just arrived in Broadstairs where I expected to find lots of frost damage but it appears we escaped, for this week at least. In London it was good to see a proper hard frost at least three mornings in a row, including on the hellebores. Have a lovely weekend Gill!
