Thoughts of fragrant hyacinth, jasmine, and lilacs give hope on a dark winter's day.
It's with great joy that I clip pictures of gardens and articles about fragrant flowers and paste them in my gardening scrapbook.
That is a scrapbook of future gardening dreams-come-true!
While at Trader Joe's last week, the first thing seen upon entering, right near a fresh flower display, were humble little hyacinth plants.
Tags noted that some were white and some were pink. Pink! Fabulous. That's my favorite color.
Despite being on an extremely tight budget that day, a little "hya" made it as the first item into my cart. It cost $2.50.
She now sits in the center of the kitchen table on a pink tinged plate.
Little by little, her tightly closed buds are opening and blooming into mini-pink fragrant "firecrackers."
Oh such joy it is to stick my nose into the fabulous smelling blossoms.
DO YOU HAVE ANY FLOWERING PLANTS IN YOUR HOUSE DURING WINTER?
