Last week we were wearing 5 layers and the bitter winds went right through them, this weekend we were out in shirt sleeves!
I'm sure we are not out of the woods yet but let's pretend that it is Spring.
Last autumn, very late, I bought a pack of hyacinth bulbs - possibly reduced. I planted each on in a separate pot and kept them in my polytunnel. When the first buds showed I brought three into the house. They never got terribly tall perhaps as they were kept cool. I've enjoyed them for weeks and these are the last three. They have smelt delicious in the house and polytunnel. Well worth the few pounds .
Also some nameless Narcissus, primula and Corydalis foliage. I brought the willow twigs in a few weeks ago. I don't remember doing it but now they have dainty flowers.
For plenty of creative and colourful vases visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for In a vase on Monday.
