Life and Gardening in the South Carolina sandhills
Thursday, March 18, 2010
Hellebores, or Lenten Roses, are a shy group. They tend to keep their heads down, for protection, I suppose, but whatever the reason, it's hard to get a good look at the flower unless you lie down on the ground. Try cutting a few on a short stem and float them in a crystal bowl, as you would camellias.
I'm a retired elementary school teacher who took up gardening and writing about it a little late in life - about 20 years ago.
My husband and I have been married for 40 years (as of August, 2009), and we have three handsome sons, a beautiful daughter-in-law that we love who puts up with us all, two adorable grandsons, a NEW baby granddaughter, and a Scottie named Bell.
