In a Vase on Monday: A Bowl of Hellebores

img_0509

It seems inevitable that hellebores would feature this week especially after seeing so many at Ashwood Nurseries on Saturday.

I have realised that I have quite a few hellebores in the garden particularly as I seem to be in the habit of going to Ashwoods at this time of year. This weekend I was looking at yellow hellebores but ended up buying a very dark one, which was good as today when cutting the flowers I realised that I had more than one yellow hellebore already.

I have a plain clear glass dish that I normally use for hellebores but it is quite small and couldn’t accommodate all my blooms. Then I noticed the pale green dish in the dining room table which lives there day in and day out. For some reason it hadn’t occurred to me to use it for flowers. The dish was a present from a work colleague to thank me for some work I had done for her.

    Nice idea, and they look great. How long are they likely to last?

  4. The green dish made a perfect backdrop – I’m sure you will use it the same way again!

    Your collection of hellebores is outstanding!!

  6. Such beautiful colours and they are set off perfectly against the green of the vase!

    Hellebores always look so pretty in a bowl and your green bowl really does the job well. Always difficult to choose a favourite though, I think 😉 Thanks for sharing Helen

  8. I’ve not seen a bowl of hellebores before; only met them in pots. I’ve tried twisting my head down and round to look up into their faces but never, that way, do they look this pretty.
