The terracotta planters that I filled with bulbs in the autumn provide a colourful display in our Easter garden.
Tubs overflowing with narcissi provide a cheerful greeting as we step outside the back door.
Combined with these deep blue hyacinths the yellow narcissi add a ray of sunshine to an otherwise wet weekend.
I love the scent of hyacinths. I find it very evocative – a reminder that winter is coming to a close and making way for springtime.
These beauties have been confined to the garden as, delightful as I find their perfume, others find it overpowering in the house.
I couldn’t resist bringing these specimens indoors to add to the silk flowers, candles and bunting in our guest room.
