Before I started gardening, I thought I was fulfilled.
However, my Experiments with Plants directly and indirectly filled voids that I hadn't even recognised, lifting my happiness to a higher level.
This is a blog about a garden near London, England, and how it is changing my approach to life.

Hellebores update (10 FEB 2011)
The hellebore flowers finally opened, and I have joined the fan club. I couldn't understand why people are so passionate about them before.
When the enormous leaves are cut away, the flowers are so prominent on their spindly stalks.
This pale hellebore looks like an older lady with a powdered face, beauty spot, ruffled collar and a floppy hat with a feather.
This darker hellebore reminds me of a kaleidoscope toy when the sun shines through it (yes, I did have to lie on the wet ground to take that photo!)
