Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day April 2013

This is what my Helleborus niger looks like today.
In the next photo how it flowered March 25th last year
after a really mild winter. It is an exceptionally late
spring this year in Norway. All over the northern part
of the northern hemisphere it is the same, I notice.


I bought a few new ones, H. orientalis, on Friday which I am really excited about (pics below this text).
In the garden the Galanthus nivalis have started blooming, and the crocuses are showing their tiny shoots. In most of the garden the soil is frozen. Then we have to remember that I garden at the 60th N latitude! Today it is raining and we have 6 degrees Celsius - snow is melting. These photos of the Hellebores are my contribution to your meme this time.

 Det er interessant å sammenligne blomstringen litt med i fjor. Vi vet jo at det er sent og det ble veldig konkret med de to øverste bildene. Men det er gøy å se knoppene nå som isen endelig har smeltet der!

  1. Våren er sen her også, så vi har mye godt i vente. Nydelige julerose du har fått deg.

    Ha en fin dag!

  2. Considering that your ground is still frozen you've a lovely set of hellebores in bloom for GBBD.

  3. I have never read a garden blog from Norway. Here in upstate New York, our hellebores are out also, along with crocuses and daffodils. But right now it's a lot warmer. Happy GBBD. I enjoyed my visit!

  4. I love hellebores and have one in my garden. Alas, it has never bloomed. Everytime I think I see a bud, I look closer and see it is a leaf instead. I am still looking for that first bud! Happy GBBD.

  5. Those Hellebores are beautiful. Thank you for sharing your garden with us. Happy GBBD!

  6. Hvor er de smukke.
    Tak for kigget.
    Ha´ en god dag.
