So I decided to bring a little bit of spring beauty indoors!
I love fragrance in the garden, and I love to bring it indoors whenever I can. Today, I picked some lily-of-the-valley. The fragrance has always been one of my favorites!
I love their little nodding heads!
The grape hyacinths are past their prime, but still have some buds left at the tops.
I thought they would look nice in this tiny blue 3-vase set!
Grape hyacinths really do smell like grapes!
I threw in some Siberian bugloss as well. No fragrance, but very airy and abundant in the garden.
And, of course, some lilacs!
The blue milk bottle vase looks prettier in the window!
There are two types of lilacs in our garden.
The lighter, bluish ones are from a woody, older lilac that was growing at the house when I moved in.
Lilacs don't last long in a vase, so I can only enjoy them for a day before I have to go out and pick more!
Note that many of the most beautiful and fragrant flowers are poisonous to cats! We love our two kitties too much to leave these flowers anywhere that would pique their curiosity. Even dropped petals, if eaten, can be deadly. So please take precautions, and if you bring in any plants, don't take chances. Put them behind glass or in locked areas away from your kitties!
