With Christmas beginning to poke its head around the corner, here in the shop we have begun to plant up some lovely hyacinth bulbs. Bulbs lay buried snug beneath the soft green moss surrounded by some lovely bright mushrooms. Hopefully they will begin to poke their noses out of the soft soil and then begin to push forth reminding us all that even in the depth of winter new life is quietly preparing to open us up to those beautiful Spring days. The lovely things about these gifts are they keep giving. Once they have flowered, hyacinths can be planted in the garden to come back year after year.
