If I could choose flowers for Valentine's Day I'd choose...
something bright and cheerful (like daffodils),
full of fragrance (like hyacinths) and something a bit wild-looking with a structural shape (maybe Silverdust).
This time of year I enjoy a visit to Belfast Botanic Garden as they've a beautiful Spring flower display in their Palm House (built in 1840).
Here are a few photos of what's on display this month.
|The Silverdust at the bottom of the photo is quite easy to grow from seed.|
|I'm amazed at how many bulbs they squeeze into an 8 inch pot. There must be about 12 bulbs in there!|
|This squiggly plant - no idea what it is - sets off the flowers really well along with the taller Silverdust.|
|Above and Below: the giant conservatory filled with plants - a guaranteed mood improver!|
Happy Valentine's Day! a day for the exchange of tokens of affection.
Enjoy your day!
