i think i’m in love (don’t tell my husband). i have a little garden in front of some windows that we see every time we go up and down the stairs, so i like it to look nice as long as possible. we added a little fountain last year, and had to cover it with an ugly plastic cover for the winter because it’s not frost-proof. but even with the ugly cover, the garden was a happy sight, because the hellebores i bought last year started blooming in december and just never stopped. they were amazing (they are Helleborus ‘Rosemary’ and i got them from Prides Corner Farms.) and now, as you can see, we’ve uncovered the fountain, much to the delight of our cat, who spends hours a day watching the water and drinking from it. and posing with the hellebores!

That is a very pretty sight! And what a cutie your cat is.
he’s actually kind of a pain, but we love him anyway!
Lucky you! There are no hellebores in the nurseries here. They say it’s too hot for them here, but I really want to try them anyway. Aren’t cats and water too cool?
he does love water, as long as it’s moving somehow. won’t drink out of a bowl; never would. cats are weird.
