I love visiting other people’s gardens. My dear friend Susan enjoys gardening as much as I do, and invited me along to her friend’s garden. What a day we had! Sheila and Jim have an amazing garden.
There were many different aspects and sections to their garden; from a kitchen garden, to woodlands, to a peony section, to hellebores! My favorite section included the hellebores.
Susan laughed when I saw the Hellebore section of the garden. I practically gasped at their beauty! Then I sighed, and said that I needed to expand on my single color Hellebore “collection”. But the purpose of garden tours isn’t to create discontent in my own garden, but to enjoy the beauty of other gardens. I was glad to be with Susan, who could remind me of that so kindly!
The colors were simply gorgeous!
I couldn’t get over the different colors and different types of Hellebores! I’m afraid I didn’t get the proper names of the plants. Another visit to the garden will be necessary for that!
The garden included so much more than Hellebores, but those beauties stole the show for me.
I didn’t even tell you about the delicious lunch Sheila made for us! We really didn’t want to leave at all, it was such an enjoyable day. I’m already looking forward to our next visit to Sheila & Jim’s garden, which I think we arranged for this summer!
Have you visited any gardens recently? I hope if you did, you were able to bring something home with you, or perhaps you shared with someone else!
Happy Spring! and to my Christian friends, Happy Easter!
