I Love the Scent of Freesia in the Morning

Plucked fresh from the garden this morning and wrapped in a faded satin ribbon.
I just hope their sweet fragrance might give them away before I am able to hand them to Millie after her first piano recital today.

Each year as I prepare the soil for a new crop of vegetables I am careful to leave the corms so that come February the new crop of purple, yellow, red and orange freesia crop up between whatever else is growing in the garden.
Bringing bee's, hummingbirds and butterflies and vases upon vases brimming with their sweet colorful buds we await the first signs of spring.
