  1. I fall in line behind Dahlia complimenting you on this amazing combination of photos. Please don’t tell me that on top of all that, that the hyacinths are from your garden – it will be too much to bear 🙂

    1. Wow! Thank you! And no, the hyacinth are not mine. My garden is a bit pathetic but right now the tulips are coming out, so it looks pretty right now! I’ll be posting those soon.
