Spring is in the air, but there’s still a bit of a chill in it! So of course, I’m yearning for flowers and adding them to pillows. The photo below is of a lovely grouping of purple hyacinth flowers that I took a year or two ago on one of my dates with my little son, Ben, to the conservatory at Vander Veer Park. Vander Veer Park Conservatory is one of the best places to visit in February and March, when you are itching to get outside, but it’s still just too cold and windy to be out for long. During these two months, the conservatory is bursting with blooms of all kinds. Among my favorites, are these lovely purple Hyacinths. They only last a week or two, but they make an amazing show and powerful fragrance.
