Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

A little touch of green

You don't need only brightly hued flowers in the garden to make a splash.

A new Hellebore to my garden, is showing just how gorgeous green can be. I don't know the name of the Hellebore as it was given to me by a friend and I forgot to ask her what it is called. I will call her soon and ask the name of the Hellebore, just in case any of you would like to have one of the same.

Another green plant I love is Euphorbia, Tasman Tiger. Not only are the leaves stunning, so too are the blooms. Last year, this one, which was struggling in it's location, was moved into a different garden, and it sure is thanking me with a beautiful display of blooms and new growth.

That Tasman Tiger euphorbia is magnificent. I wonder if it'd grow in Austin, TX!

Your green flowers reminded me that last year I was given a flower bouquet that contained some Molucella laevis (Bells of Ireland). Even though the flowers in the bouquet were vivid bright colors, I think the Molucella stood out the most! I'd love to try growing some in our own gardens this year.

There's me whittering on about that gorgeous white hellebore in the nusery and your green ones are just as lovely. I love the foilage of euphorbia, so pretty and yours is so happy! :)
