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 Grandma..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 :)
