The shy Helleborus, a flower I normally associate with winter (hence the common name Christmas Rose), looking quite splendid in early June (after being coaxed to look skywards). I have 2 hellebores in my garden, neither of which has ever produced much flower, but I think next year may be different as the changes in the garden have produced a healthy looking flush of growth this year. Keeping my fingers crossed. As far as I know they are the kind with yellowy green flowers. I'd love to have some of these darker ones that were growing at Malleny Gardens. Below, it looks even lovelier with light from the weak evening sun shining through it's leaves...
