From Foxgloves To Furballs

The rain stopped this morning, so I have been for a mooch in the garden. The seedlings are looking good and the onions and carrots have started peeping now too. We have several foxgloves about to flower and one white clematis flower.

Can anyone tell me what this is? It is growing alongside my strawberries, but I'm not sure if we planted it or if it just appeared!

Alfie always likes to help me to "tidy", which usually means he brings a load of dirt, dead leaves and twigs back into the house with him!


  1. It's a hellebore!!!! I love them, and have about 30 different varieties. Great photos!

  2. Thanks Erika- like I've said before, I'm a rubbish gardener, but with help from lovely people like yourself, I am learning every day:)

  3. Lucky you to have a hellebore. I love them but they don't like growing in my garden. Alfie looks like he's enjoying himself- he's so cute!

  4. I don't think you're a rubbish gardener at all - everything looks so pretty! I like the pic of Alfie "helping"! x
