Christmas Roses

5S7A8221-Edit-2The Hellebore is one of my favourite flowers, not least because it flowers for long periods at a time when one would think such fragility should really struggle to survive a Northumbrian winter.

And when gardening and plants seem to cost the earth, the meek little hellebore spreads really willingly so cutting the cost of filling a bed.

It is a lot tougher than it first appears.
