Fifteen Hyacinths Later
A body of work that seems to have inadvertently tracked ‘time’ during lockdown part two - instead of buying flowers, I have been drawn to these quirky bulbs and have managed to keep them constantly flowering as a positive symbol that spring would come and fortunately now is here. It has proved quite popular as they sit on the kitchen window sill, sprouting, over growing, top heavy and drooping all over the place. Not forgetting the lovely fragrance ( natures perfume) and mystery random colours. The bulbs will placed in the garden soon and will pop up next year, not as a negative reminder of the lockdown but a strong reminder that as a family we survived the cold weeks, working from home, and dark nights.
