Mum's Advent Calendar 13, Days Left 12

It's not getting any better! Good luck with the hunt today.

These hyacinths shot up very quickly. I think I've put them too close to a radiator. They smell wonderful

This orchid is flowering just in time for the festive season.

I am linking my Advent Garland to KC's Court again this year for a really Advent Bloggy Christmas.



  1. I love the scent of hyacinths - such a clear fresh smell.

    1. I agree, I love them too. When I was a Primary Teacher we used to get the children to "follow instructions" to plant hyacinths in pots in September (7 year olds), and then the classroom would smell simply divine in December. Was looking longingly at some bulbs today, but they are a long way down my list of spending priorities sadly.

  2. In the orchids near the bases?


Thank you for your comments. it's always exciting reading them.
