hellebores

Hellebores are an evergreen perennial. I like them because they bloom really early. I started out with a few plants and now have a variety from division and self seeding. I have mostly Helleborus orientalis hybrids with one Helleborus foetidus. The orientalis are what is in bloom at the moment.

They are all over the yard so just a few pictures of the ones it was easy to get to. A large clump of various shades outside my bedroom.



This one is self seeded and upward facing -- a bit of genetic diversity.



Others of a downward facing bloom type that make it a bit difficult for me to photograph so you can actually see the flower. Think me balanced on crutches, holding camera, trying to mentally convince the silly things to look at me, with wind.







Now back to grading midterms.
