My Hellebores are in bloom! Also known as Lenten Roses, these and snowdrops are the first flowers I get to feast my eyes on in early spring. I love these so much that two years ago, I planted 30 more plants—they come in a wide range of colors. A single blossom, nestled in a tea cup, will last for over a week.
Beautiful flowers for today which would have been my Mama’s 102 birthday. She is the one who gave me a Farmgirl Heart. She wore aprons, grew a garden outside of the kitchen, canned, was a Girl Scout Leader for over 50 years, and could do beautiful handwork and sewing of every kind. She had a big heart, showed kindness to everyone, and loved to see new places. She loved the colors of these flowers shown here in the photo today. These are for you , Mom!
Some day you’ll have to tell me more about your Mamma and family. Have you ever watched Finding Your Roots on PBS? I think you’d like it.
I love that show and try and watch it every week when possible. Yes, I would love to share about my Mamma and learn more about yours. From your Ideas book, I think they had a lot in common. It would be a great campfire subject to enjoy!
Happy Birthday to your Momma 🙂 Thank you for sharing a piece of her with us.
LOve Lenten roses, so underappreciated and lovely
Finding Your Roots is my favorite show. Have you noticed the opening with the paper tree sculpture? I n
ever have grown hellebores before, They look lovely!
I am so glad you get to see something so beautiful. Those don’t grow in Minnesota. Enjoy!
Woke up to an inch of snow this morning! Freezing temps. Nothing green is growing or even poking out of the ground in northern PA. Sigh——–
I’ve never heard of Lenten Roses. Would they grow in CO?
I think so, depending on the elevation.
