LittleGem tagged me to show the 4th picture from the 4th file on my computer....
And its this (not that interesting) picture of my hyacinth bulbs just before they flowered - these ones came through in pink and grew so madly I ended up cutting the flowers as they leaned even after being tied with string!!
The pot is now by the back door waiting for the greenery to die off so I can then plant the bulbs in the garden - waste not want not!! - my mum said she has had varied luck with them coming through but nothing to lose except 5 minutes light trowel work to see!!
The cornishware bowl came from my mum fetched it from her house after she died its very very crazed inside due to age so I am reluctant to use it for anything foody, but I think Grandma would be pleased to see it having another life :)

They are beautiful Dolly :)

I keep meaning to plant hyacinths (I adore them, and grape hyacinths too), but I keep forgetting to.

I was wondering if I'm too late to plant them indoors this year?

Anyway, lovely and lovely bowl too, I think your dear granny would be proud :)

God bless, Rasp xx

It's always good to see through the bad things, I think it also means you get to buy cheaper!!! This house had languished on the market for over a year when we snapped it up, and that was when things were going well! And oh yes it is great to meet other people interested in the little details, I was a bit dubious about posting up pics of the skirting boards!

Lovely photo Claire. Is the bowl a "real" Greens Cornish ware one? I used to work there, but the only local Cornish ware I know of now is "brought in" for the visitors centre.

Love and blessings
