Challenge: Countdown to Christmas! - "H"

Planted in Fall 2006, this was my first hellebore . .
Helleborus orientalis
These photos were taken April 2, 2007

I was so happy!

These photos were taken April 20, 2008
(I wasn't "taking stock"in this little fellow - the second  H. orientalis.
He was already one year old ... just didn't seem as though he would survive!

This guy, however, was new.  I'd planted him during the Fall. of 2007.
Helleborus 'Brushstrokes'

(back to the first plant) H. orientalis
These photos were taken May 9, 2009

And now Blooming "Brushstrokes!"

I can't help myself.  I've caught "the Hellebore Fever!"  ;-)

Just this past Spring, I planted three new hellebores.  Oh, yes!!
But until I clean up the "piles of papers" at my feet, I don't remember any of their names except Peppermint Ice!

Please tell me I'm not the only unorganized person these days!  lol

 Best Wishes to you as I Count Down to Christmas!
