The scent from these hyacinths is so strong I have had to put them in our conservatory.. But aren't they magnificent!
A present from my DD for my birthday which was before Christmas. I put them outside until after Christmas, so they have lasted a long time.
Not a wonderful photograph as these orchids are on the landing windowsill which seems to suit them.
When I was asked what I wanted to do when I retired many years ago I said... 'Grow orchids and keep bees.' I haven't managed the bees but my orchids flower for months on end.These are several years old. I feed them once a month and only give them a table spoon of water once a week. I love them, they always look so sophisticated and elegant to me.
Of course it never occurred to me that I would do so much craft stuff as well.. do you know 'Retirement' is not bad, in fact it is wonderful!
What did you want to do when you retired and have you been able to fulfil your dreams? I 'd love to know..
