Hellebore 'Mardi Gras Double", not the miracle, these are very easy to grow luckily.
I wanted to show the pretty speckled inside.
Hellebore Winter Jewels 'Cherry Blossom', probably missed the peak day by a day or two. Somethings been chewing on it, not sure who to blame.
Hellebore - Christmas Rose type.
No this Pulmonaria isn't the miracle, although the flower surprised me today! These bloom for months once they get started.
A happy surprise to find the Pieris in the container starting to bloom, but not really a miracle.
This might be second on the list of miracles. The pinecone mulch seems to have prevented the squirrels from digging up the tulip bulbs.
Here is my miracle... a Delphinium is returning and the slugs haven't completely decimated it yet. There are two that I planted last summer but since I've never had luck with them returning or being completely chewed up by slugs I sort of thought of them as an annual. These are the one flower that I wish I could have a large stand of like I see in English cottage garden pictures. I have sprinkled a pet and wildlife safe slug bait around them and will be guarding them them for the rest of the spring. I will be keeping my fingers crossed that they will be blooming in June.
