The Scent of Spring!
Here in Florida, we are blessed to have beautiful blooms in our yards year round. Our landscapes are often bursting with little dots of color here and there. In my native North Carolina, February and March begin the jonquil, daffodil, hyacinth, crocus, and lilly,and tulip season. I love these delightful flowers and loved planting lots of bulbs each fall to increase our beauty each spring! I hope the new owners of our former home will delight in spring this year as they are greeted by the flowers I planted.
This time of year, I love the fragrant hyacinth. With the impending arrival of my precious friends, I delighted in purchasing a pale pink hyacinth for the living room. When I bought it on Friday, its buds were tightly closed. Today the buds are open and the beautiful floral fragrance fills our living room and beyond. As I sit and type, the beautiful smell delights me. What floral scents do you love?
