Flowers really lift a home with their colours and perfume. Aromas are mood changing, don’t forget to exploit their potential during these dull winter days when darkness draws down so early. I’m loving going into the kitchen in the morning, open the door and there’s a whoosh of wonderful perfume. The Christmas present hyacinths are doing their bit, tottering in their pots they’ve taken over like a well endowed tipsy wedding guest. Blousey in every sense of the word, extravagent rows of ruffled fleshy petals, plastic colours, pumping out their outrageous perfume.
A wonderful present that goes on giving long after the event. They’re welcome to take over my house anytime.
