Spring sampler

I'm not usually a cut flower person when it comes to my own flowers- I tend to prefer them to be au naturale- but I made an exception for these jonquils.
The frilly erlicheers at the right have the most wonderful scent. They bring back memories of my grandmother's garden in Launceston, which was packed with spring bulbs. We would often go to visit in the September school holidays, and return with a huge bunch of daffodils, jonquils, hyacinths and freesias wrapped in a damp rag and foil. So the scent of jonquils brings back memories of sunny afternoons driving through the Tasmanian Midlands. Strange but true. :)
