Hyacinth


The first Pink Pearl Hyacinth that I brought from the old flat has flowered. There are five more bulbs nearly flowering through various stages of development.
It smells lovely....
No more bird watching today.Its cold and dark now.One more night to go!

Thanks Pat,I will see you soon at Work!
Kylee,They smell so nice, a cross between Lavender and Candy sticks.I keep smelling the flower at close range, but even better is when I catch a whiff walking into the kitchen.
I have had two ready forced hyacinths which flowered quickly then went over.I have these six bulbs in a bowl, and five outdoor ones in a blue ceramic pot!
Before I moved I had never grown hyacinths before.I'm a big fan of them now!
