I’d planned to do some gardening at the weekend but the weather had other ideas. The poor daffodils and snowdrops that had dared show their faces were covered in another blanket of snow. The wind howled down the chimneys and under doors and Sunday was definitely more of ‘build a fire and put the kettle on’ kind of day. I decided to do a little bit of indoor gardening so that we could at least bring a little Spring cheer into the house. Falcon Enamelware tumblers are the perfect size for the tiny pots of tete a tete daffodils that are in all the shops at the moment. I’m using the Spring Green and Porcelain Blue cups around the house and have planted some hyacinth bulbs in some of the Falcon Prep Set bowls. I think they make a rather lovely and inexpensive display.
As a child I had a Ladybird book called Indoor Gardening which had lots of ideas for growing miniature gardens in glass fish bowls and the like or trying to grow tiny ferns in glass bottles. I think my kind of Indoor Gardening is a tad easier. Quick, effective and you can use the cups another day.
