does the saying 'a watched pot never boils' translate into a watched bud never flowers' ? the oriental hellebores are starting to bud, this one opens to a small pink flower
this one has larger pink flowers with dark markings
this one has dark purple flowers with bright yellow stamens
this lovely crumbly compost is from the back of the manure pile at the farm, I anticipate it will grow marvellous weeeds in amongst the vegetables.
