Good afternoon,

Would someone be able to identify this flower blooming in my garden. I had a look and it looks like a fox glove or helleborus so would like clarification please? Thank you in advance.

Certainly a Helleborus, perhaps Helleborus purpurascens or cultivar,

Welcome!

Definitely a hellebore, there are many different varieties,
with intricate markings like yours. A lovely plant to have in the dark days of winter. A good food plant for any early bees that may be about too.

Most Helleborus in UK are now considered to be Helleborus x hybridus.

They come in many colours...plain colours and spotted.
