Hellebore, Crocus and Raindrops

11 Feb

1   There is a garden near us that always has a lovely display of Hellebores at this time of year but it is hard getting underneath them to get a photo!  I must find somewhere high up to plant some for myself – the purple, white and green would be perfect for my Suffragette garden.  Click on any photo and zoom in for the detail.



2   Our crocuses are having a hard time – no sooner are they up then along comes another storm and beats them down.



3    The leaves on next-door’s Clematis are getting blown off too but I love how the raindrops collect and act as mini magnifying glasses on the veins on the back of the leaf.

    The last image, ‘droplets on leaf’, I find peaceful and inspiring. You’re eyes seen the potential. Looking and seeing, completely unrelated. Well done.

    I can’t believe you are seeing spring flowers already. Lovely photos!

    The crocuses do seem to be suffering badly in the wind and rain. We have a crocus lawn so are hoping they don’t flower until this weather improves.

      I hope they stay put too. It would be lovely to see a photo when they do appear! 🙂
