Window Dressing # 8 – Flowers that bloom in the Spring tra la…………….

I don’t often show the right hand side of the kitchen windowsill – it has a fly screen on the window and the view can be a hazy.  But would you look at that  – dishes on the draining board means Catherine has actually stood there long enough to do some housework!!


Of course I don’t mind too much when it’s a lovely sunny day like Sunday was – and after this brief interlude in domesticity I was out the door and like a shot.   The previous post tells you what I did and saw but when I told you I’d picked the first Spring Bulb I didn’t mention there were a few others bits flowering as well.  Not enough for a flower basket (well I haven’t actually got one but it did paint a pretty picture didn’t it lol) but they did have to be carried indoors very carefully for the Kitchen Window Sill.


As well as the first tiny unnamed jonquil (similar to paperwhites), I found a single bit of Hebe, an early bud from one of the Camellias, a couple of Azalea blooms that had survived the rain and much to my delight the Bergenia plants are starting to flower.  Is this a sign of Spring or are these just plants that love Winter?  I’m hoping it’s my first thought 🙂



And of course there are the resident felines to consider – curly and his friends had been admiring the view since the beginning of last month so I gave Big Ears a treat and put him on there to keep them company.


Did you see Santa and the shells were also still sitting in the same place on the right hand side – not enough dust in the air for me to have to wipe it down therefore they have sat there un-noticed all this time lol

How’s your window looking these days – are there enough flowers to make you smile at the kitchen sink?

  1. So very pretty! I don’t know about spring though, from where I sit right now winter seems to have come to stay. Brrrrr


  2. I dare not show anyone my sink….it has husband’s pineapple heads drying out on one side, assorted misery on the other….and it doesn’t have a window…just those pierced concrete blocks which give me mini views of the bougainevillea beyond.

    My bergenia in France used only to bloom when good weather was for me that meant spring.


  3. Hi Cathy, thank you for sharing these beautiful flowers with Today’s Flowers. Your kitchen sink area looks bright and lovely. Mine not so much 😉
