Just in case you can't see the flower in the first photo I took a close up, love the perfume, smells of spring.

Paddy's Spring flowers
Yay, I finally got a spring flower, this jonquil is forced so it is in flower earlier than it would out in the garden. Like Phil I put some bulbs in a glass container to have a go after seeing it on Pinterest, gotta love pinterest. I put 3 of jonquils or paperwhites as they where named and 3 of something else which I cannot remember what. The jonquils came up quite fast but the other 3 took ages, I was beginning to think that storing them in the fridge for a couple of months after forgetting they where there, had perhaps killed them. Eventually they did come up. Last week all of a sudden a bud popped out and in a day it was out in flower.
