Those orange-cup daffodils were blooming at my neighbor’s, between her house and the brook, but too far away from the house to be noticed. I marked them and dug them up and got half for myself for the labor of digging and replanting her half. The hellebore came from Seneca Hill Perennials. I didn’t plan this combination. The daffodils were already there; the hellebore was an unexpected gift that I had to “put somewhere,” and that’s where I thought the hellebore would be happy.
I’ve since surrounded these two with some grape hyacinths that bloomed somewhat after the peak of these two, and there weren’t enough of them to make an impact this year.
What do you think?
