What lies beneath

It’s snowdrops for most people, but for me the nicest indicator of Spring is the hellebore.

They have been hiding underneath the snow, but now they are revealed. The flowerheads need to be upturned to fully appreciate just how lovely they are.

Apparently in Greek mythology, Melampus of Pylos used hellebores to save the daughters of the King of Argos. They had been overcome by a madness induced by Dionysus that caused them to run naked through the streets – crying, weeping and screaming. Goodness me!

Well here are some of my Dad’s lovely hellebores, photographed by Neil Robinson for our Fabulous Flowers range.
