Market purchase...

 
Bonjour from a showery SW France,
 
I purchased 3 hyacinths at our village market last Thursday and my lovely flower man advised that they would have pink flowers.
 
When I bought them it was not easy to tell as all each had was a green stump of buds.
 
Almost a week later and they are starting come into bloom and they smell gorgeous.
 
 
 
Just what I need to brighten up a rainy day in SW France...
 
à demain, Leeann x

  1. Bonjour Leeann,

    I love your pretty pink hyacinths. On Saturday I bought some bulbs to plant for Spring.
    Hope you are having a lovely week

    Hugs

  2. They are such beautiful flowers which truly welcome spring! I was looking at them in the market in Aix-en-Provence when I was there 2 weeks ago http://bit.ly/1A731N8

  3. If of thy mortal goods thou art bereft
    And from that slender store two loaves alone to thee are left
    Sell one
    And with the dole
    Buy hyacinths to soothe thy soul.
