Blogging from A to Z Challenge: H is for… (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2023 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

I’ve revealed my theme (My life in first drafts), but this year, instead of pretending there were ever plans, I am unashamedly blogging my theme letters on the fly.  So, here goes nothing!

So, without further ado, H is for Hellebores.

I never used to know what Hellebores were. Then one day a work friend of mine asked if I wanted to go to Helleborganza with her and her daughter – their annual trip to SaltSpring Island and Fraser Thimble Farms where they had a great Hellebore sale every year. I said yes and now, many years later, Hellebores bloom happily all over our back and front yards.

If you don’t know what Hellebores are, they are also called Christmas roses (well one variety is called Christmas rose) and they typically start to bloom in December or January and keep blooming for a long time. Mine are all in full bloom now and show no signs of stopping.

Here are some pictures for you.

Thanks for visiting my 2023 A to Z Challenge – Letter H.  You can find links to more blogs participating in this challenge at Letter A, A to Z 2023 Challenge Master List (Google Docs).

Guess I’m kind of a rebel too…although I do like using the “official” letters…

  1. They are beautiful.

  2. The first one is my favorite.

  3. These are all so pretty, and I remember you featuring some on other posts as they started blooming in your yard. I once asked at a plant nursery if they had any I could buy and they had never heard of them. 🙂

  4. The coloured ones are great – not so keen on the greenish white ones…

  5. I love them and hope to find some to plant in my garden.
