In spring 2010 our friend Alan Shipp, the former potato farmer who supplies us with our rarest hyacinths, emailed us this photo by Tim Upson, Curator of the Cambridge University Botanic Garden.
“It’s my hyacinth field after a small shower of rain,” he explained, with a double rainbow arching overhead. “Isn’t it stunning?”
