oh, that's gorgeous! and I bet the scent is wonderful. I got some "giant hyacinth" plants once - prob was that the flowers were too heavy for the stems and kept flopping over unless I propped them up.

LOL.

I don't think Mum would have minded the use of her basket. She loved flowers! :-)

Such a nice idea. My daughter bought herself some a couple of weeks ago and the scent was so strong she had to put them outside. I love them.

I have the same coloured ones just outside my front door, but they are going over now...in more ways than one!

Are yours actually more 'purple-y' than the camera shows? They look blue in my photo, and they're not.
