Today I managed to get six whole hours in the garden before the rain took over and beat me back. Six whole hours, amazing. One of the tasks I carried out was to remove last years leaves from the various Hellebores, now that their blooms are beginning to reveal themselves.
When I got home I got distracted and forgot to put together my vase for Monday. By now it was dark and so with torch in hand I carefully selected three flowers for my vase.
This vase is actually a 500ml chemistry flask and I chose it for the fact that its narrow neck supports the shy downward turning Hellebore heads and allows me to see them.
