Hellibores at Aunt’s

Hellibore about to flower

This is the largest hellibore that is about to flower at Aunts. However, we have to clear the garden so as to be able to get a skip in. Loads of trees are to go, leaving just a conifer, as they are seriously in the way. But in doing so, these hellibores would also be flattened. So I went up this evening in the dark (from having done the usual Mother run) to dig a couple up and pot them up.

Unfortunately for them, it turns out that they were growing through cracks in the hard standing, and it was impossible to do anything.

There were quite a number, and could only have been growing there for the last three or four years, since before that Aunt was still driving and parking her car on the hard standing.
