Isn’t it great seeing spring flowers finally come into bloom? I’m sure I’ve been able to smell them in the air some mornings, which is a sure sign spring is about. Ever since our Christmas decorations were put away at the beginning of the year, I’ve continually had fresh flowers in the house. It wasn’t a conscious decision but every time one bunch went over, I bought a new one. Nothing expensive or fancy, trying to support local shops where possible and it has been lovely having fresh flowers, especially as our spring bulbs have only recently started to come into bloom.
The spring bulbs are finally coming up in the garden too. The crocuses have been about for a little while, but the daffodils have only bloomed in the last week. I’ve also noticed a few tulips and hyacinth are almost ready to burst into life. We didn’t have much colour in the garden over winter and I didn’t realise how much I would missed seeing their colour. We’ve resurrected a near dead orchid and it finally bloomed last week, which was amazing. Not only was I amazed that we hadn’t completely killed it, but that we were able to get it to bloom again. Bloomin’ marvellous! (*groan*) There’s something so lovely about having fresh flowers around, whether they’re in the garden or the home. They really brighten up my day.
