Bouquets indoors…

Walking into the family room is a little more cheerful these days, now that I can bring blooms from outside indoors!  I love walking the garden almost daily right now, because everything is waking up and sometimes changing by the hour!  A few days of good hard rain, then a few days of sunshine is a perfect combination for the future of our lush landscape!  This week, I brought in cuttings from both my Pink Flowering Current and White Flowering Current.

While walking around the landscape, I noticed most of my hyacinth falling over sideways, so I decided to cut a few blooms and bring the gorgeous fragrance indoors before the slugs devoured them.

I have always loved your garden! So of course I love what you posted today. I've been working on my gardens as well. My hollyhocks are going crazy this year. They are up to the roof of the house right now!

Happy Spring my Friend. . .

What a treat it must be to have all that colour in the house. I can't wait for the lilacs to bloom up here.

Tracie, love your Spring blooms. I have been wishing I had blossoms to bring in. My flowering Pear isn't large so I hate cutting from it yet. My Weeping Crabapple is loaded with buds. Should open soon. Maybe then I can snatch a few.
hugs,
Jann

So pretty. Things are starting to bloom around Boston too! One day it looks like Winter and the next day Spring has sprung. Love it!

We usually go from Winter to Summer so this is quite refreshing.
