greens



I saw these sweet things the other day, that had been bought to grace the table over Christmas 2009 and subsequently forgotten. I only noticed them because the kittens were trying to tuck in and once I'd managed to get close enough, realised the already fragrant hyacinths had survived all this time without any water or attention whatsoever. I think they deserve some now, don't you?


It occurs to me there are other greens happening in our house right now and I'm wondering whether it must be due to the onset of spring. Perhaps I'm coming out of my grey phase?


But then again, looking at the 5-day weather forecast, I doubt that very much!

Happy weekend x

  1. Maybe - lovely greens though and just the right thing to leave those grey days behind....despite the weather.

    Have a wonderful weekend,

  2. I think its the time of year - my current favourite colour is a deep greeny/turquiose - perhaps I'm dreaming of sunny summer days and trips to the beach??

    Have a good weekend xx

  7. Your home must smell delicious. I forgot my hyacinths too but they still rewarded me. It is good to see that you, at least, have had time for some sewing. All of it is gorgeous. Enjoy your weekend. T x

  8. You will have to amend your list of titles to include 'gardener'...that cute lolly pink hyacinth just unfolding is magic! Your greens definitely have that spring feel..only another six weeks...it'll fly!!

  10. I'm afraid spring is a long way off for us, though we did wake to sun this morning after a long while and I am thrilled. Such pretty colorful photos, love the pouches!
    Happy gardening!

  11. Gorgeous greens! I love them too at the moment - it must definitely be linked to spring! Love the valiant little hyacinth still growing there. Have a great and green week. Helen x

  12. I visited my Dad yesterday, and came home with a bowl of hyacinths. He makes one up for me every year. It probably did yours good, especially if you were keeping it in the dark. The flowers are such a fantastic shade of shocking pink! x

  13. I love hyacinths, they must be little fighters if they survived that long without water or attention! I love your green purses too, hurry up Spring!

  14. What a lovely splash of colour to brighten things up - I didn't have the foresight to plant bulbs, but I did buy two pots of yellow primulas the other day to kid myself that it was Spring already! Lovely blog.

There's nothing like a comment to stop me feeling like I'm talking to myself. If you leave one here I'll pop one back here too, so don't forget to come back and continue the conversation ..
