When the hellebore are blooming during this time of the year I want to buy hundreds of them and plant throughout the garden!
The newer hybrids bloom heavily and for such a long season! Below is the hybrid HCG Jacob.
Several camellia are blooming, too!
Snowdrops are still blooming, too!
Tonight will be there coldest all season!
And that means it is soup season –
French onion soup
Or a potato and turnip greens soup
Or a very much chicken and dumpling stew
And the Raleigh Farmers Market is loaded with cool season veggies so the combinations are endless!
But than I am surprised when I am walking through Home Depot checking out the Christmas clearance and I spot a table of huge Batflower plants! It is such a rare find!
There are reputed to be difficult to grow in a house so I don’t spend the $34.95 but it was tempting since they are rarely seen. Maybe they will be the next trendy plant?
