No snowdrops but look at my helleborus!

Well the poor showing of snowdrops this year has been a bit of a mystery but the helleborus have been wonderful. I have several types and they are all in flower around the garden. Like the snowdrop they can only be appreciated fully if you lift their heads, as the flower always looks to earth.
Something different for my blog I am going to have a competition. All details will be on my blog at the weekend sometime and there will be a prize at the end of it. I hope all that visit my blog will join in the fun and who knows you may win something to. Quote: Gardening requires lots of water, most of it in the form of perspiraton!

Too bad about the snowdrops- a little secret, I like Hellebores better anyway! Mine just started blooming. I can't wait for the weather to warm up for the full show. Pop over to my blog and have a look.
