~White Wednesday # 92~


The sun has been trying to peek out from the clouds here today and it is a beautiful sight. I bought some Hellebore plants for my front flower beds and since the weather has not cooperated for me to get them planted yet, they've been sitting on my front porch. They are a beautiful color with whites, creams and a faint purple before they open up and are such a welcome sight every year since they bloom in late Winter. I think they compliment my statues pretty nicely. Tomorrow is supposed to be dry and warmer and I actully don't have to run kids anywhere, so I'm hoping to get out and get my hands dirty working in my yard....wish me luck:) Enjoy! xoxo K.

I'm also linking up this post with Fishtail Cottage for her Cottage Flora Thursday. Please stop by and check out her lovely blog. You can click on her badge on my sidebar and it will take you to her site.

  2. Hi Kathleen,
    it all looks so peaceful and fresh.
    hope you find the time to plant your lovely flowers and dig in the dirt.
    I have given up being a gardener this year.
    I will just sit back and enjoy yours

  22. I hope you have a lovely time in your yard. Hellebores are pretty, aren't they nicknamed Winter Rose? I love how they have the green tinge before they reach their full colour.

    Cheers,

  41. I planted two bare root Hellebore plants in the fall. They aren't blooming this year so I am thinking they will need another year to establish themselves. Their other name is the Lenten Rose. I love the flowers!

    ReplyDelete

    Hope your week is going well! I need to get outside and get down and dirty, too!!

  45. Hello Kathleen! This is my first time back in a while -- I have missed blogging regularly, as I am busy with the launch of a book. I enjoyed coming here today, and it looks as though you really have a lot of participants! I guess the whites will always be popular. Thanks for hosting.
