Kennemerend_Postal card_Hyacinthus_1910_viewingI am combating the grey and dismal weather by filling the flat with green herbs, sweetly scented narcissi and colourful hyacinths.  As I stand at my bus stop in the bitterly cold mornings, my thoughts turn wistfully to spring and the promise of warmer, lighter days. There is a strip of earth at the back of my flat that I hope to transform into my own field of flowers (on a miniature scale!), once more clement weather arrives. In the meantime, this exhibition opens at the Garden Museum on Valentine’s Day and looks a wonderful way to brighten the last weeks of winter. – Miranda
