Mmmmm..... What a lovely fragrance the hyacinth has! This one was a gift from a student. After I enjoyed it inside for a while, I divided it and planted it in my front flower bed.
Now, don't misunderstand... I love flowers, but I'm a vegetable gardener at heart. My poor flower bed... I wish I'd give it attention, but I rarely do. That's why I like hardy bulb plants that I don't think will need me. Somehow I'm always amazed each spring when, indeed, those determined flowers return and do their best to make my flower bed beautiful.
These little hyacinths have done just that. ....Mmmmm... I can almost smell them now even though they're months away.
