Pink Hyacinth in Shasta County

This beautiful flower blooms annually, and is a perennial and that means, that if they are successful the first time around, if everything goes right, they should bloom again, the following year.  So you don’t have to go and buy more seeds, or flowers. 

 

Two stalks of pink hyacinths which are many blooms per stock of pink fragrant blooms.

In addition some annuals spread themselves, and you might find more in your garden than you planned.  My mother planted these Hyacinth and they are gorgeous.  Every year they get bigger, and smell better.

Hyacinths are an early spring bloom, February or March sometimes in California.   They smell go good also.  What a lovely fragrance they have.

Daphne Bouquet.

I made a bouquet of Daphne recently and I love this flower so much.   I know I go on and on about it.  It’s a perfect winter flower.  It’s actually a big bush, and blooms quite a lot.

Close up of one white gardenia, and leaves, pure white, and smells like pure heaven.

Gardenia’s in Redding, Shasta County

Beautiful blooming white gardenias, many of them on a huge bush.
This flower is a beautiful bright white, and smells absolutely fabulous.  You can smell the fragrant as you walk by.  It had so many blooms this year it was amazing.  These were taken in July and the plant still has some blooms on it.
Our favorite thing to do is have mini vases filled with a few of these in a room.  You will never need to buy air freshener again.
Gardenias grow well in Redding.

These wonderful wild flowers are beautiful and also very fragrant.  You can smell them when the wind blows.  I caught this caterpillar enjoying the flowers in the early spring.
