Flowers for Birthday

 

Despite of a cold season one can always purchase any flower in January but I love spring one especially in my birthday. They tell me that spring will soon come to my garden.  Here is a gift received in this morning, I love hyacinth!
My own hyacinths are forced and their stalks are growing now.




I also had a small gift from my friend - it's packets with Blue anemone tubers. She knew I wanted this color anemone in the garden. Thank you, S.!

 

My family always pleases me cooking dainties at my birthday. Today I've seen my favorite cake with cottage cheese cream, raisins and nuts. There also were choux pastry buns (similar to cream puffs or profiteroles) with whipped cream and of course a cup of fragrant coffee on the table.




Whatever it is, I always invite my loved ones and friends to feast on and, telling the truth, I can not eat a lot of sweets :0)  Well, help yourself!
This weekend we'll go to watch the play 'Taming of the Shrew' by William Shakespeare performed by very young actors and then will have a family party. I hope to have fun, oh!

  3. Happy Birthday Nadezda. I love hyacinths too but it is ages since I grew any - I must put that right!
    Last year I planted those anemones and am hoping that they come up again this year.

  10. Your Hyacinths are beautiful. I cannot think of a better birthday present. Mine had 11 weeks of chill in the refrigerator and are planted in pots of soil. I find that a great way to force them.

  25. Belated happy birthday! I love hyacinths, but they give me a sore throat so I have stopped growing them indoors and instead I enjoy them at other people's houses. I still get the sore throat, but it clears once the beautiful hyacinths and I part company. The fragrance is wonderful.

  26. Dear Nadezda, sorry I missed your birthday, it’s 10 days ago but these days I don’t get to read all the blogs I follow the day people are posting so I am often reading them much later. Anyway, hope you had a lovely celebration with your family and friends – loved the hyacinths, mine in the garden are almost flowering now :-)
