Re: anybody planting out there?/what's blooming

They're such interesting flowers. Wish I could grow them. There's been a lot of chatter about them in the British garden groups recently. They seem to be blooming all over the Isles and the European mainland as well. The Lenten Rose moniker seems to be accurate.

This has happened many time over the years to me... they seem to survive and
come back the next year.

I hope you're
right, Gene.  A couple of newer, younger plants of
a different species - I'd
have to look it up - that were moved down
to the garden last fall in the
oil-tank fiasco, still look pretty good.
But that seems to be a slightly
milder microclimate.  I think it
was the bitter cold with no snow cover,

block of ice that lasted another couple of weeks that

We've had three thaw days, and a lot of the ice is gone, but
we're predicted to have 4"-6" of snow tonight.  Goody!

Same conditions here, Auralie.
I just finished cutting back all the
bad foliage. Some have no foliage
at all now. But, I see with this warm spell
new buds and blooms are emerging
from the crown down in all that mess. I
would doubt the plant is actually
dead... set back probably, but not dead.

My large, old Hellebore which was
blooming lavishly in January
before the ice storm looks totally dead now.
Not only are the
blossom stems all turned to mush, the large clump of leaves
is totally black and flattened.  I have had this Hellebore for
probably 15
or 20 years - can't quite remember.  It has never
been a favorite because
the blooms weren't a pretty color -
sorta greenish purple - but it was a
handsome clump, and
just outside a downstairs window it was always an early
sign of spring.  I am sorry to lose it.
