Not a photographer - but have been intrigued by the "black background" photos on here.  Last night I noticed how pretty the catkins were in the glow of our lamppost - so here goes ....

 Its a bit dark when small, but better when enlarged

Clematis plants in containers

Comtesse de Bouchard is the one whose name i couldn't remember - performs great for me in a container.  Would recommend lining your pot with bubble wrap before the compost goes in too - helps keep the roots cool.

Welcome back MrsG - glad you enjoyed the snow

Pond sounding lovely Dove - look forward to following progress.

The rainy weather prompted an ironing spree.  First time i have seen the bottom of the basket since Christmas.  But at least the rain is settling all my new plants nicely in their homes.  Can't believe its Sunday already - can i have another weekend in the garden starting tomorrow please ....

So pleased with my hellebores this year


Helleborus argutifolius?

Posted: 02/03/2014 at 15:06

Experimented with the leaves of my stinking hellebore - they smell quite strong, and very green - but not unpleasant - i think it has been much maligned   Never knew green had a smell - but that is definitely it
