When I walked into the grocery store after Christmas, I was pleasantly overcome by the most beautiful hyacinth aroma. I couldn't resist. I had to bring one home. Or five... (The Lizard said the pot full of bulbs was a better deal than one bulb in a glass vase, even though those glass vases of heavenly aroma are so incredibly beautiful!)
I didn't invest, but the grocery store had the most beautiful blue orchids, too.
It will be a while, quite a while, before my outside garden bulbs dig out...
Inside flowers in winter are such a great source of beauty, inspiration and happiness.
My five-year-old neighbor gave me this for Christmas. Although I don't know yet what they will be, I suspect daffodils or tulips...
Indoor flowers in winter also are another fantastic way to demonstrate the difference between an iPhone, a point-and-shoot and a professional-grade DSLR camera.
