Over the weekend, the sun came out and it almost felt like Spring was here. Even so I was puzzled that in the kitchen I could smell blossom - I actually dismissed it as washing liquid or similar, till I noticed this very small, ragged hyacinth in the corner of the windowsill. It may not look great but it scents the air and brings in hopes of Spring.


  1. I could actually smell that as I read your post,,ahhhh spring,, seems a long way off here in canada.

  2. It's been feeling rather Spring-like here all week - mild and damp mostly but one day with sunshine which almost felt warm enough to sit outside. Then, of course, I remember that it's only January and that February is the month for snow!
