A true sign of Spring for me is when the grape hyacinths
come into bloom. I noticed the first ones today out in my
little garden by the pond.
I've arranged them with a bit of soft lamb's ear in a mini
white hobnail vase and they will go on my bedside table.
When I wake up in the morning, the scent of the hyacinths
will be the first thing I notice, even before I open my eyes.
