My cut flower this week is the Lenten Rose (helleborus orientalis) and I admit I have never cut one for the house before as I don’t have very many.  However, it is getting far more attention here on my desk than it would in my (wet and muddy) garden especially as it has a tendency to hang its head and thus hide the delicate stamens and speckled petals.  The National Collection of Hellebores is in Kent and you can buy plants here.




Happy Monday.
