Oh, to be more like…the Hellebores

Standard

 

  • glamorous – in a dark, edgy sort of way
  • a little moody – the flowers incline their heads like thugs lighting up in a dark alley…you have to get up close to appreciate them and then KAPOW! They’re a knockout!
  • a little dangerous to know – many are poisonous…the name says it all: HELL-ebores
  • iconoclastic – they bloom in February, even through blankets of snow
  • entirely self-sufficient – they thrive and even seed themselves in poor soil
  • tenacious – they come back bigger and badder than ever every single year, with blooms that last for months
  • invincible – deer? Please! Those suckers take one look and keep on moving.

Wishing you a wonderful, wonderful weekend!
