~Pink Hyacinths~

The sun has been trying to come out here today and I wanted to take advantage of the light coming through my windows and share these pretty pink hyacinths that are finally blooming with you.  I started these as bulbs and have enjoyed watching them grow sitting in my kitchen window.

They were getting top heavy, so I cut some blooms to have in my bedroom.  I love having flowers in there so I can smell them as I'm drifting off to sleep.  It reminds me of warmer days to come when the aromas from flowers in my yard will drift through the open window with the breeze....pure heaven.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I've had this tin cannister for a while now with it's faint writing"cafe".  I wish I could find a set of these for my kitchen....at a decent price, which is the problem.

Such a soft, pale pink bloom and I love the contrast with my architectural capital.

I'll be sharing with these lovely ladies this week:
Becky @ Timewashed
Debra @ Common Ground
Courtney @ French Country Cottage

Wishing everyone a very special Valentine's Day spent with the one's you love.
