“And the Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
Rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.”
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Despite the occasional shower, it was a perfect day for working in the garden. I did not do much. I got rid of the last autumn leaves and weeds in the middle part of the garden, cleaned the garden furniture, and took lots of photo's of the pretty bunch of Hellebores I cut.
The Hellebore is such a rewarding flower. It has been in bloom for several weeks now. Although seed heads appear, the flowers still brighten up the front part of the garden under the hazel tree, which is partly covered in shade.
I added a few cherry- and hazel branches to the bouquet. It looks really sweet, with the tiny pink flowers of the blossoms, and the small buds on the hazel branches ready to open up to spring.
Wishing you a Happy week!
