Spring is my favorite season. After a long winter, you want something light and delicate, and you can't find a better theme than the first flowers. Moreover, nature for work is now available almost all year round in pots: crocuses, daffodils, tulips, primroses, muscari, hyacinths and more. And in the cut you can find the rarest flowers. Or you can plant it yourself in pots if you stock up on bulbs and seeds in the fall. And today I propose simply to be inspired by the magnificent watercolor works of the masters of botanical painting.
The hellebore (Helleborus, Helleborus) is a perennial garden plant and just a beautiful flower. In English, the hellebore is called the Christmas Rose, the Rose of Lent or the Rose of Christ. This is not surprising - hellebore blooms here in winter or early spring, despite the snow, cold and icy wind. The hellebore belongs to the Ranunculaceae family. The Hellebore genus (Helleborus) includes about 20 species that originate from central, eastern and southern Europe and western Asia. In nature, hellebore grows in the foothills, as well as in forests, meadows and rocky areas on limestone soils.
