I'm just popping in to share my grape hyacinths! They've pretty much faded from the garden and the lilacs and lily of the valley are now blooming (I'll be sharing those with you soon). Things are about 3-4 weeks late this year.
Grape hyacinths have always been one of my favourite early Spring flowers. They make great cut flowers and have a soft, subtle fragrance. I tucked these into a tea tin. It seemed like the perfect container.
From the few bulbs I scattered throughout the garden about ten years ago, they've spread and filled in nicely. I love seeing a sea of lavender blue flowers when I look outside.
I'm making really good progress with the garden and am very happy with how it's looking. This afternoon I'll finish planting the pots (at least that's the plan). Digging is still really uncomfortable for me so I get my husband to dig the holes and I plant! Works out perfectly.
