SPRING ARRIVES AT THE CHESTNUT COTTAGE GARDEN!

Oh my…spring seems to be arriving early at Chestnut cottage… hellebores by the dozens, early spring daffodils, the heavenly  scent of daphne,  sweet little purple crocus, tiny white snow drops, and flowering cherry trees! The “early birds” are always the beautiful hellebores and oh how I love hellebores!

I love the way the hellebores surround my little garden cottage.

Hellebore arrangement

I made an arrangement for the weekend with the hellebores from the garden and some “super green” roses.  The roses made a nice textural combination with the hellebores and they had a casual look in the flow blue cachepot.

A few weeks ago, I made this arrangement in a silver container with some heather from the garden and hydrangea from the flower market, which looked a bit more formal.

A variety of colors in hellebores give lots of options for cut flower arrangements.  Again, I used the green roses and hellebores in a sweet little ribbed glass vase.

All I can do now is hope that everything that is blooming and will soon be blooming doesn’t get wiped out by a March freeze!  What’s in your garden in the middle of February?!

    P.S. I departed Guam and arrived in Missouri Sunday. Mother has been diagnosed with kidney cancer and breast cancer. Her kidney will be removed Friday. Prayers appreciated. 🙏🏼
