A Little Bit of Brightness

On my way to turn off the greenhouse heater this morning, I spotted this little beauty in flower.


It's a self sown hellebore seedling that appeared last year but this is the first time it's flowered.


I suspect it's a hybrid and isn't a pure variety but it's a lovely mix of dark pink and lime green,


just perfect to brighten up the dullness of a grey December morning.

Such pretty colours, I just wish that they held their heads up instead of always inspecting the earth for worms.

I absolutely love hellebores and leave mine to self seed as much as I can - mine are all way behind yours and I can only see a few buds coming at ground level but I shall remain hopeful for the spring! xx
