With preparations for the Vintage and Handmade fair reaching manic stage, everything else is on hold. Housework, gardening (not that I do much of that really), even blogging have taken a back seat as a I gather, sort, clean, arrange, price, pack and panic!
So, a very short post, this is a hyacinth I bought a couple of weeks ago, I was excited to find an orange one, looked forward to flame coloured blooms and even went to the trouble of potting it in a basket with an orange trim.
I thought it was too good to be true and sure enough it wasn't orange, not even apricot, just a pale pinky peach. It still looked pretty though and did smell nice for a few days, then it began to stink and had to be removed to the garden.
Not sure if I'll post again before the fair, less than 2 weeks now, but hope to see you there!
