Notes from a USDA zone 5 shade garden in Southern Wisconsin.
Oh, I'm so glad they opened for you! At least breaking them wasn't a complete loss, right?! Very pretty!p.s. About planting forced bulbs, I usually put them out as soon as the ground is thawed after they've bloomed. The hyacinth I had on the blog today is a late one (for me) so I'll plant it right after its done blooming. Sometimes (when forced early ~ like January) I'll have to wait until late winter to get them in the ground. The foliage always flops (no matter when it's planted) but I never worry because the following year, it will be fine. Hope that helps.
Simple and nice arrangement! Ciao.
Kathleen: Yeah, and it looks like the Hellebore plants outside are going to be OK. Thanks for the info about the bulbs. I planted the Hyacinth bulb the other day. Wish me luck!Dona & TS: Thanks! Just a little experiment with a broken bud set.
I like your pictures. They are not amateur at all. Seems like Spring already comes to your place. I still need to wait a little bit longer.ps, I wish my DD was so big as yours now. :D
GreenGardenMom: Thanks! Yep, spring is here! I just hope it keeps getting better and we don't slip back into the cold...
I like to float Hellebore flowers in a shallow bowl of water, but a vase is lovely as well!
@Arie-el: I will plan to do that next year! I'm planning to plant more Hellebores this spring, so hopefully I'll have more blooms to display. :)
