Yesterday, I uploaded a photo of a double yellow hellebore which I mixed up with a single one I have had for many many years. The double one I bought in Altamont in February 2014 and could be a Harvington Hellebore. I should take the photos myself so that I look at what photo  I am putting with the journals.  I find the site is very helpful for keeping a record of my plants as I am someone who is not very good at keeping records because I KNOW I will remember them, like hell I will.

Haha, you are so right Mary.  I always think I will remember a plant's name and then, after only a short while these days, I'm left wondering.  Those are two lovely hellebores; the only hellebore I ever bought at Altamont was a Harvington double (deep pink, though it was called red) and I think it was the same year, so you are probably right about that.

Either way, they are both gorgeous. But particularly the double.

Stunning is all I can say ;)

Me too. I'm hopeless with plant names, but sometimes I'll remember the Latin name of one plant and forget other really common plant names. Those Harvingtons are spectacular.

Sure don't we all remember in the same way!!!!!

Gorgeous Hellebores! Yes, I keep thinking I'll know what is in a certain container etc etc, even though I really know that I won't.
