Hellebores and Gravel

Pink Hellebore flowers with their characteristic drooping habit sit draped across slate-coloured gravel. I photographed these at the garden I visited last weekend. They had many varieties of Hellebore – many of which were positioned in beds along gravelled paths offering a nice combination of soft and hard landscaping.

  1. You weren’t tempted to get underneath them, by any chance? Not that they don’t look lovely as they are! It’s a cool composition 🙂

    • Hello Lu! The flowers were more or less sitting on the gravel so it would have been a difficult thing to get between them! Also, Hellebores look much prettier from this side I think! Many thanks.

    • Many thanks Calvin. I do love pinks, blues and greys. This organic garden – which opens for charity a couple of times a year – was so lovely and very much planted for wildlife as well as beauty.

  2. That’s nice! The greens and mauves/scarlets go well together, and the textures of the plants look good too, while the chippings form a good, neutral bacldrop. Good stuff! Adrian
