In the middle of the stark bleakness of the winter garden, when everything around is like a sepia photograph, rises the one diva: the hellebore. Although, this is a woodland plant, the white one in my garden does not mind being in a sheltered area outside the office window. This is the first of the hellebores to bloom, soon the dark magenta will shine through and along with the crocuses welcome spring back to the land.
