Spring bulbs

Today I have been planting up some glass cylinder vases, filling them with the type of small spring bulbs that repay close attention - miniature narcissi, ready to open their trumpets, white and checkered snakes head fritillaries, vibrant grape hyacinths, and, for a heady scent, roman hyacinths, more delicate than the usual garden variety.
As all these are hardy, they can be planted outside after the flowers fade and will bloom again next year.
