You know I am a seasonal flowers kind of girl. I like food in season too.
It does mean, however, that by January I am getting pretty desperate for some fresh flower loveliness in my garden and home, so it is with real pleasure that I watch my indoor forced bulbs begin to grow, twist and bud into being. These beauties are in a zinc tub filled to the brim with narcissi 'tete a tete'. They lean wonkily to face the big window in our sitting room, and if I turn them around in the evening by mid-morning the following day they have turned again, straightening themselves out! They are the hope of spring in a bucket!
I have also potted up some white hyacinths, the buds are looking so plumply, almost squeakily, ready to burst into flower,
When Spring is hiding in the garden, you just have to tempt it inside!
**Thanks to my friend, Jane, at SmallbutCharming, for getting a pile of us to share pics of our indoor flowers and brighten up the last day of January!**
