Re: update

We have been having wonderful rain since I got home from spring break in Park City, Utah! Utah was beautiful... not as much snow as I expected but beautiful weather. I found almost 2 inches of rain while we were gone in my rain gauge. I think we have a chance of rain every day this week with severe storms tomorrow. I got out and pulled weeds yesterday.... so many.... but noticed my hellebore are blooming. I have a Master Gardener friend that sent me a beautiful picture of one he got last year. I want to share his note with you all. I will paste it below!
(Thought you might like to look at
some of the hybrids that are doing best. I ordered these from Pine
Knot Farms in Virginia <http://www.pineknotfarms.com/>.  They ship
gallon containers of well developed plants - much better than most
mail order vendors. If I were recommending one Christmas Rose from
the seven I ordered, it would be Hellebores nigercors "Ashwood
Strain". It is the most vigorous Hellebores I have and the only one
with flowers that are upward facing. You can look at the pictures I
took today by going to
and double clicking on the first photo. Above the enlarged photo you
will find my description. Click on the right arrow in bar to the
right of the description to see the two other hybrids that I like.

Subject: [CHAT] update

It has been gorgeous out for the last few days or so here, 77 today, but
that is all coming to end shortly- so they say! (they are claiming the
temps dropped 17 degrees in 5 minutes) What is with this weather!

But Auralie I did notice that although many of my hellibores looked
dead, once the hot weather hit, I did get some more stalks come up and
now I have one blooming and another about too!

Many trees and shrubs are budding out and this weather is gonna have a
big impact whether I actually see spring blooms or not. The ponds are up
and running. I see my waterlillies are going to have to be thinned as I
can't believe how over run they got.-again! Fish survived and all look
healthy, but they don't feel like being friendly, so the jury is still
out on that. They have grown alot over the winter which kinda surprised
me. (they usually don't double in size!)

I cut down my grasses and a few things, afraid to do too much...- it's gonna get cold here again!..
