Re: hum.../hellbores

I planted a pink and a white Hellebore last summer & forgot them. DH is the
leaf remover here, and when he vacuumed that front bed under the weeping
cherry, there they were, blooming. The pink is clearly visible from the
front room. H. foetiditus gets very little sun between the garage & fence,
still in bud. Another light lavender Erica is blooming and found the first
dandelion bloom, spring's coming, woo hoo!
