Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - February 2018
|Helleborus 'Cherry Blossom' from the Winter Jewels collection|
I moved the bulk of my hellebores this past fall season, to a newly reclaimed flower bed that had held a very old (and large) privet hedge. It was quite the project, but seeing all of these pretty blooms, made that difficult endeavor worthwhile.
Hellebore's like full sun and I had sadly planted too many of my collection in the shade of taller plants. Now this fully exposed bed will give them the space and light they need to flourish.

Hellebores aren't the only bloom in my February garden...

Below is my first manzanita....oh this is going to grow into a pretty little tree. I'm excited for it get larger so that the resident Anna Hummingbirds can really enjoy it during the winter months.

Happy Garden Blogger Bloom Day from the great Pacific Northwest! A patch of cold weather is headed for us I'm glad that I got in some garden clean up and photo taking while it was mild. Onward to March!
