They have a fragrant musty scent that fills the conservatory.The gardens Daffodils are still growing and a few weeks away from flowering.Daffodils are the flower of Wales and my name sake Saint David.I love how they make me feel after long wet winter.
Flowers in bloom always cheers me up.I bought these mixed Tulips from Asda a few days ago.I looked at photos of multicoloured fields of Tulips growing in Holland.
I wander if these flowers originated there before being sent to Britain.They are like a Rembrandt picture.
The last flowers I want to share are the Snowdrops that are growing in the front garden under the window.These were here when we moved in.I am always surprised that they bloom in February before disappearing underground for ten months.It was too cold for them to open today.The petals were held tightly shut.
It has got cold again today.February always lulls us into thinking spring is near and then the artic winds and snow come back with a vengeance.At least I have some flowers to keep my spirits up.
