This time of year hyacinth and tulips are in the stores and everyone is hoping that spring will come sooner rather than later.  This arrangement, made with spring flowers, is monochromatic with a real 'gardeny' feel to it.  The vase used is actually a pint sized wide mouth Mason jar wrapped with 4 pieces of Collard Greens (no bacon please) and a single piece of raffia, tied in a bow and knotted at the ends.  These flowers will bring not only the color of spring into your home, but also a heavenly scent, as the aroma of hyacinth is almost intoxicating.  Do you want to learn more about hyacinth flowers?  Try this site:                                             https://www.longfield-gardens.com/article/All-About-Hyacinths
