I found a few early signs of spring coming soon. Lovely coral red blossoms that open just before and during the month of August, I will have branches for the next few weeks, to put into a favourite cut glass vase. And small marguerite daisies. Paperwhite jonquils, which are especially fragrant filling the room with their scent the first several days after I bring them in. And a few creamy and bright yellow jonquils too. Cute little grape hyacinths, with their intoxicating perfume. And a few crazy silly roses that have still been blooming, right up to Rose Pruning Week ! A few pink, two yellow, and one red.

|Coming in for a little sniff. Yum, jonquils ! |
(fortunately the cats do not eat these, but the last of winter's roses have already been "enjoyed" and grazed!)
