At least something's growing

As reported earlier this week, I bought a pot of three Hyacinths in hopes to make this dreary house a bit more cheerful. I was worried that our current lack of sun would be a problem, but I need not have feared.

The clusters are already breaking apart and the flowers are trying to open up even without the sun. When the sun makes its much anticipated return tomorrow (along with temperatures 10 degrees higher than today's) I'm sure they'll open up like gangbusters.

It would be nice to have some pretty flowers for the family dinner this Sunday.


  1. It will be such a treat for you when the flowers do finally open up.

  2. Thanks for the reminder. I need to get to the store and get a pot of bulbs, as there are none blooming outside. It's a bit sad, really, having to buy ones bulbs in a pot rather than just have the darn things bloom in ground in March, when they should (if only they weren't covered by a foot of snow, drat!).
