O Beautiful Spring Basket…

…from the Promise Gardens.  Spring has surely sprung!  As you see, the spring flowers have tempted me to create many lovely arrangements for the spring photoshoots.  I am always in awe of the rich colors and uniqueness of each flower and leaf.  Lilacs, hyacinth and bulbs create a spectrum of delight!  I wish you were here to take in the sight and aroma!  It’s breathtaking!

Oh My Hyacinth!

“Poetry is the synthesis of hyacinths and biscuits.”_CarlSandburg

The lovely colors of lavender, purples and orchid will be the prime color of the Promise Garden container gardens this year. It is also one of the selected colors for the new garden bicycle. There is nothing so beautiful as the varying hues of hyacinths and spring flowers as the garden palette. You can guess from the site header that these are my 2012 color choices!

Hyacinth & Me

….oh the perfume…oh the color…

I love hyacinth especially for the wonderful perfume they emit so every year I plant them, this year many of them in pots all over my porch.  They so captivated me that I brought a few indoors (oh so much better than oils) for room fragrance.  After I watered the pot, the droplets stood out so starkly, I grabbed my camera and took a few quick shots.  I love the color but then, I love all color, but purple and red had me at first look.  Enjoy and take time to smell the hyacinth and bring them indoors for beautiful room perfume.
