Spring has definitely arrived in your area! The hyacinth are so pretty. If I concentrate a bit, I can smell their sweet fragrance!

Hey, first it was your drop-dead gorgeous daffodils, now it is these multi-coloured heaven-sent hyacinths. You are 'killing me softly' with these flowers that will never bloom in my garden!

My fave bulb is the hyacinths! I can imagine the fragrance you are getting from these gorgeous blooms!

NellJean said...

Thanks, Tootsie. My favorite is always the one I'm seeing at the moment.

NellJean said...

I'm glad I don't have to choose between hyacinths and daffodils.

They are a treasure, Autumn Belle. I love tulips, too. My tulip experiment this spring was a near-failure. I've decided to put my tulip money in cut-flowers from the florist next spring. I could have bought a huge bouquet of tulip blooms for less than what I wasted on tulip bulbs for two blooms which is all I got.

Can you grow freesias? I was reading this morning about someone's freesias, which of course I wanted some, too.

Oh I am so jealous, you're a few months ahead of us here in Northeastern Ohio...our spring blooms will be coming in about three months...and I cannot wait. I LOVE hyacinths, one of my absolute favorite spring flowers...I miss the beautiful smell! :)
