New hellebore

Helleborus 'Winter Moonbeam'

I bought this hellebore 'Winter Moonbeam' recently for the front garden, following the revamp.  I chose it mainly for its marbled foliage and reckoned it would look good even if it never flowered.  Now buds are appearing and I can hardly wait to see it in bloom.

I think a few of you have it, if I remember rightly from earlier journals.  Looks like pink in bud, opening to pinky white?

It's so hard to choose just three ... you have set us quite a challenge, Peter!

My first has to be from spring when our gardens burst into new life.  This  primula 'Glengarriff' was bought at Johnstown in January and proved to be a little gem here through the season.

I enjoyed many visits this year to ier's gardens and to the public and private gardens we visited as groups.  The highlight has to be that magical day at Bodnant in May with the rhodos in full glory and the sun shining as this fantastic garden was revealed to us.

And what a wonderful gardening year it has been, with flowers, berries and foliage colour all through autumn and even into early winter.  Pyracantha berries and a still blooming Rosa 'Compassion' keep the pleasure of the garden going.
