Shades of Green

By CaroleS
My Hellebores (which normally hang their heads) are so full of bud this year that the first flower on each spray has been pushed upright as you can see from the moisture drops.

The dreaded chicken pox has caught up with the twins so yet another little blip on my time as they are now home from school!

My grateful thanks to you all for your kind comments and votes.

Best wishes
Carole

A beautiful hellebore, Carole, and now nice to see one head raised, they are such shy little blooms Smile. Perfectly presented, as always. Carol

Lovely details and glorious range of green shades. Good luck with the twins. My Granddaughter caught the Chicken Pox some months back. Not a lot of fun all round!

They make such excellent subjects at this time of the year when the garden is otherwise fairly colourless: I do love this greenish/yellow variety and you have captured this one so well, Carole.
The higher ISO has introduced some noise but it just adds to the slightly misty effect achieved with your processing.
A lovely image in every way.......they don't come much better than this.

This is so very beautiful. Green flowers have a strange, eerie feel. Green is after all the colour of magic, of the fairy world. And it runs right through the frame here.
