My day has been perfumed by these beautiful hyacinths – I have more at home, so the fragrance surrounds me even now. Heaven. Especially welcome given the chill, steady mizzling which I hope and believe will give way to something brighter, dryer, though colder, tomorrow.
I bought more Hyacinth bulbs today, Gypsy Queen, in a mix with Salmon Impression & Peach Blossom Tulips, Cheerfulness Narcissus in there too. Now to find another pot for this Pastel Shades Collection… Late planting, but I think I’ll be OK.
Now here is the first of a regular, weekly series of pictures of the cutting garden at Petersham Nurseries. Slumbering now though there is a substantial treasure of bulbs beneath the surface – many are already peeking through – and come Springtime, the growth will be technicolor, knee-high and heading upwards.
