I f you missed this post the first  hyacinth  went
in my black urn (here)
Decorating for Easter.

You see I have this cute wire basket and 2 hyacinths.
So here is my Easter Basket

You will need the following
a basket preferably wire,
2 mason jars,
sheet moss,
bag of moss,
butterfly pics
$store easter eggs

First I transplanted the hyacinths into the mason jars.
Then placed them in the wire basket.
I cut my sheet moss to fit inside the basket.
Then spread the loose moss over the top of
the jars and  across to fill  the basket.
Scatter some eggs and butterfly pics.

That's all there is to it.
Wasn't that easy.
Now Enjoy!
