I turned thirty two this month, woooo! Our lovely friends had a bunch flowers delivered to say happy birthday. Since the garden has zero colour at the moment I thought I’d share some photos of them instead, they’re beautiful. Much nicer than our swampy looking garden — even the once interesting seed heads have turned to mush.
Hyacinths! Seeing them reminded me to check the hyacinth bulbs in the garden. Tiny buds are forming in the centre of the leaves; not long until they flower now. Can they be moved indoors to flower after living outside, or will that shock them?
Can’t get enough of these anemones; rich colour and big blousey petals.
During Winter you get use to everything been green and brown, but these flowers are a reminder that it won’t be long before our gardens are waking up again. I need to think about ordering some seeds and a few bedding plants to fill our troughs. One of my birthday presents was a beautiful box of seeds containing viola, calendula, nasturtiums and lavender — all of which are edible. Every year I say I’ll get organised but Spring always creeps up on me.
Beautiful flowers Gemma very lucky girl ? Xxx

Thank you 🙂
Wow – what an injection of colour – and much appreciated.
I wish I could have flowers like this in the house all the time but alas, I would be pennyless.
What a lovely selection of flowers and quite unusual colours as well for a picked bunch.
We had blush roses for our wedding day, so seeing them bought a smile to my face 🙂
Very very belated happy birthday! And fabulous flowers xxx
