My passion for Hellebore's continues to expand. I am just plain old hooked on Helleborus Orientalis types. Here are a few new additions to my gardens this year:
|Helleborus Spring Promise 'Charlotte' Orientalis type|
|Helleborus Spring Promise 'Valerie'|
|Helleborus Spring Promise 'Elly' A gorgeous, frilly, double Hellebore.|
Last year on the recommendation of fellow garden blogger Catherine, from A Gardener in Progress, I purchased a Flowering Currant. I am enjoying the scents and blooms right now!
|King Edward VII, Flowering Currant|
I found this white flower bush, jammed into the front of the hedge of Laurel. It dawned on me that it might also be a flower current as it is blooming at the same time as the King Edward, VII. What do you think?
*Update..It's an Indian Plum, Osmaronia cerasiformis
I have transferred quite a few plants from my former residence. These Candy Tufts are doing well in their new home.
|Iberis, Candy Tuft|
Daffodils, planted last fall in my new front flower beds are just beginning to open.

What spring bulb garden would be complete without dainty, tete a tete daffodils?
And finally, in just the past 3 days our ancient, Star Magnolia, has begun to burst open with blooms. It is quite a sight.
I will count myself fortunate if we are lucky enough to receive future sunny days this month. Traditionally, March brings with it a slog of rainfall, making it one of my least favorite months. However, I cannot say that this year. It has been extremely pleasant.
