As you know, I love to have flowers indoors, and whenever possible my bouquets and vases are filled with whatever is flowering in the garden …. March is a little tricky! The daffodils are not quite open, I’ve done the snowdrops to death, and we have to wait a few more weeks for the magnolia.
Bulbs provide a good solution, and I often pick up budding hyacinths at the market and slip them out of their plastic pots and into a container at home.
Last week, I bought these blue beauties, who – placed in an antique bowl in the warmth of the house – shot sky high and then started to fall poetically under the weight of their fragrant flowers. I love that.
I have been moving them around the house, and when this weekend, I found a little family of white primroses, hidden behind a bush, they were lifted and placed on a tarnished tray. I’ll keep them here for a couple of days then replant them in a corner of the garden where they can grow on undisturbed.
In the meantime, we have enjoyed the blue and white together, brightening the sitting room and perfuming the house.
Keeping it simple, bringing the spring indoors.
