Soon time to plant spring bulbs. I leave mine for a while yet while I daydream about being able to pick as many as these tulip-pickers in a 1966 window in Spalding by the always excellent Harry Harvey. My late mother-in-law took us to one of the very last flower/tulips festivals in Spalding in the 1980s, just before the Lincolnshire bulb business collapsed. I went back years later to see this window which I love because it celebrates the local flower farming business (and potatoes in the other section), and I can imagine that when it was installed, the congregation didn't expect it to become a period piece so quickly.
A little like this one by Caroline Townshend and Joan Howson (1940) in the small, remote church in Sancreed in Cornwall. There are many vivid accounts of the impact of the railways on Cornish life, one of which was the possibility of getting early spring flowers and vegetables to valuable London markets. A few daffodil growers still flourish in Cornwall and on the Isles of Scilly (Cornish anemones are also particularly lovely) so the window is not yet entirely out of date. It all makes me wonder where else you'd find such beautifully designed and made permanent, public tributes to bulb-planters and flower-pickers. That's the glory of stained glass for you.
And for spring planting - potatoes in Spalding:
