Hellebores On Parade

Today dawned sunny, cold and dry. By early morning it was warming up and we were off to a garden tour and open house! Northwest Garden Nursery is owned and operated by Ernie & Marietta O'Byrne. They sell unique perennials and always have the "latest and greatest" for sale in the plant world. In recent years they have focused on the raising and hybridizing of Hellebores. They hand pollinate and choose for unique forms and colors. They have a magnificent 1.5 acre display garden which wraps around their farmhouse. It was so nice today, to be outside and enjoy the incredible display of color.
