These blue hyacinths are in bloom today in my garden. I couldn’t resist putting one in a yellow vase, I love the combination blue and yellow. I just took one flower as they bloom much longer in the garden than in a vase.
After I took this photo I put it in my livingroom on the coffee table, my whole house smell’s like Spring now !
I have a fig tree in my garden for about 10 years or so, it was planted and trained against our garage wall, in a hole we made in the pavement, it is not even a big hole and still the fig tree thrives in it and we get many ripe figs each year. And the tree grows like mad, I have to prune it several times in Summer.
I once got a small pot with blooming hyacinths and I planted it under the fig tree, but after a while it got company of a taxus which selfseeded and a euphorbia which selfseeded. And everything is thriving in that small hole so I think ; life is good under that fig tree.
Finally they are in full bloom, I have been waiting for it for so long now as they have been in bud a long time this year.
It is such a beautiful day with the sun, the blue sky and the warmth.
The buds of my syringa ( vulgaris “Beauty of Moscow”) against the blue sky, I love it ! But they still have a long way to go before they are in full bloom, I hope I will have many blooms this year. I always cut them all for inside as I looooove the smell !
