Green Boats

The Hyacinths from my Secret Santa present are growing nicely now in the ceramic pot. The flower buds are starting to rise between the leaves. They look like five green boats floating on a murky sea of soil.
I hope to have flowers and scents soon.Its funny how much later these have flowered compared to the Bulbs I forced and the bought ones that were also forced. Maybe six or eight weeks later these laid back Hyacinths are near flowering!

We have some containers in about the same stage of growth. It will be a bit before we will be enjoying the beauty and fragrance the blooms. We force hyacinths every winter to get an early jump on our spring fever.
