Actually I think you have -- I'm sure I got a whiff of it when I saw the pics.

Anna

Mmmmmmm, I think I can detect some scent too ! A beautiful colour.

Hyacinths in January and a bluebell wood in May are to me the most heavenly sights and scents on this earth. Working away from home means I cannot enjoy my own bulbs. Thank you for giving me the pleasure of seeing and invoking the scent of yours.

I haven't really got a strong sense of smell but I do love having a tub of hyacinths by the front door in Spring as even I can smell them. I often wish other senses could be used on the internet especially when looking at yarns and people's creations but I fear it would be misused,even if it could be done! Its always the few that spoil it for the many don't ya think?

Cheryl

Ah, one thing I miss from living in the British Isles is the early spring. Hyacinths are not even on the radar yet here! And to see the snowdrops peeking out in a few weeks would be cheerful to the soul!

Donna

Thanks for posting these wonderful photos. This is a wonderful gift on a very snowy Sunday morning.

Karen, I am planning a first visit to Edinburgh for a weekend later this month. What should I see? Where should I shop? What is the best place to get a cup of tea? I'd love to hear your insider's guide.

Carol

Beautiful colour - but thankfully I can't smell the scent. Strangely, I find it too cloying.

Ros, I'd be delighted to point you in the right direction if I possibly can!
How long will you have in the city, and what sort of things - generally speaking - would you like to see/do?

Karen

A weekend, probably. I don't specially want to do real tourist things, just enjoy a bit of city life (up here in Dingwall there's not much of that!)

I'd love to know of any good wool shops, fabric shops and so on.

Also which art galleries or museums you'd recommend. My tastes are fairly eclectic though I do especially love things at the domestic and/or decorative end of the spectrum (the V&A is my favourite place in London, for example, but I also love Tate Modern).

I have a trip planned to Fidra Books with one of the friends I'm meeting, but if there are other interesting bookshops I'd love to know about those too.

Thank you so much!
