Believe it or not, up until a few days ago at least, my Hellebores were still blooming.
I guess that goes a long way towards explaining how cold our May was here in Toronto! It’s cold no longer though, we’re currently having a major heatwave with temperatures in the 30 to 33 Celsius range ( that’s in the 90’s F) plus we’ve got humidity on top of the heat so it feels even hotter.
I haven’t checked the hellebores since this heat started, but this is what they looked like only a few days ago:
My tulips were also lovely in May. This one is called the Canada Tulip I believe due to it’s red and white coloring:
This tulip even has a cool looking flower bud. You can visit my photoblog Breath of Life to see it’s variegated bud if you’d like to.
I hope that you had a great weekend and that your Monday is going well. My Green Thumb Sunday post is late due to an allergic reaction that I had on Saturday. You can read more about it over at As the Garden Grows if you’d like.
