Primary School Window

What sat on the window sill when you were a child in primary school?

Well when I saw these today it brought back all those memories. We always seemed to have cress sitting on blotting paper and hyacinths in water, like this. So I couldn't pass these by. Plus the price was right, reduced from $7.99 to $1.99

The hyacinths are a Pink Pearl and a Blue Delft, the smaller ones are crocuses, a Remembrance, Jeanne d'Arc and Pickwick.

The glasswear, made in the EEC; I will be able to use again next year.

Just looking at their little shoots popping up brings joy and such memories too. From the instructions, they need to be put a dark cool place until the shoots are longer and then bringing out.

The plants behind are baby lemon trees, which Rob is trying to Bonsai.



  1. Those look wonderful. Such pretty jars. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog a while ago. Your kindness was much appreciated.

  2. I love them--so cheerful and ever changing.
