I am in love again.  My lovely wife Susan simply has to get used to it.  Whenever I walk outside, I fall head over heals, once again, with my hellebores.  People who have followed my love affairs are probably a little tired of this mistress, I have been singing her praises for some time.

However, she just keeps getting lovelier.  Her grandmother, the Lenten rise was quite wonderful, but her offspring, the hybrids that hold their flowers up, show off the size of their blooms and glow with different colors are stopping traffic.

Don’t believe my words, maybe you’ll believe my photos.  These were taken after a number of nights of 13-17F temperatures, ice and a little snow.  Such weather did not even smudge their makeup.

Most of these can be viewed on the Armitage App (Just go to the App Store and search "Armitage), along with gardening hints and other good information.
