Following the Seasons


You know how gardening and interior magazines follow the seasons.
Early spring issues of gardening magazines will every year have articles and photographs about snowdrops and Hellebores.
Interior magazines will every year have very stylish interiors and table settings in autumn colours.
And so one season follow the next.
It is lovely to be reminded of the changing seasons and to be inspired and be creative with your home and garden.
I never cease to be impressed by bloggers who are also gardeners, interior designers, stylists, photographers, food writers, authors, artists and all those making crafts of one type or another. 
Most of us will be inspired by the changing seasons and showing an enormous amount of endless creativity season after season.



Well, I seem to have been doing the same thing.
 I looked back over the last two years and found that I have shown Hyacinths quite a few times!

Enjoy!


Have a lovely weekend!

Hyacinter är helt underbara!!!! Har ett helt hav av dom hemma nu..... Fyndade när Ikea sålde ut sina 'julblommor'... Fniss.... hyacinter är väl egentligen mer en vårblomma.... Men favoriter får gärna finnas med under flera årstider........ eller hur!!

Superfina bilder du tagit!

Happy New Year, Ingrid! I love all your hyacinth photos but this one is my favorite. The blues all together are gorgeous.

Hyacinth aren't my favorite bulb but I do love and appreciate their amazing scent when they bloom!

Hello Ingrid. I so love hyacinths, in any color, and that hyacinth fragrance is divine.

Your 2011 January hyacinth photo is a beauty, and having checked the earlier posts, I can see that you and these flowers are made for each other.

We've survived our new year's snow blizzard here, but tonight have been treated to very delicate snow flakes starting to all just as night also fell.

Who knows what we will see at sun up tomorrow? xo

Så ljuvliga bilder med den fina blå färgen.. jag tycker det är härligt med olika säsonger det gör ju att man går igång varje ny period för det är ju så att varje säsong har sin tjusning, just nu har jag en STOR längtan efter vårens blommande lökar.. o det gissar jag är jag inte ensam om.. *Smile*.. Ha en bra söndag/moa

I'm not sure is it Marimekko ( my dress when I was little) but I think so because everything was Marimekko
back then. Photo is taken 1971 or -72. It is shamed that dress is not existing anymore it is so cute:)
