The freesias are blooming. They're pretty in any case, but even more so when the sun lights them up from behind. The nice thing about these freesias is that they come back, year after year, with little or no effort on my part.
Freesias have flowers ranging from white to yellow, pink, red and blue-mauve. They are mostly cultivated professionally in the Netherlands by about 80 growers. Freesias can be grown from seeds or from bulbs. Because of their pleasing scent, they are often used in hand creams, shampoos, and candles; however, the flowers are mainly used in wedding bouquets.
