The Hellebores Around My Farm

During this time, if you can get out and enjoy nature while safely following important social-distancing guidelines, do - going outside, even for just a little while, helps reduce stress and improves the body’s natural immune system.

I am fortunate to be able to take walks around my Bedford, New York farm and see many of the season’s flowers - among them, the hellebores. Hellebores come in such an artful array of colors, markings, and formations, it’s hard not to love these fascinating perennials. I’ve had hellebores in my gardens for many years, and I find it so rewarding to have blooms that start in March, and continue through spring until the end of May - to me, hellebores are must-haves for any gardener's collection.

Here are some photos of the hellebores blooming at my farm now, enjoy.
