This week a few more bulbs are blooming in the front yard. I planted the crocus bulbs and some grape hyacinth, but the rest are little surprises from the previous owners. I don’t know what these are, but I love the tiny, sweet, delicate flowers with their thin purple stripes.
Next to bloom will be these hyacinths.
I used to force hyacinth bulbs in the late fall and then set them in small glass vases with water and stones. When they were near the blooming stage I would give them away.
Things got to smelling nice and strong and flowery in my place when the hyacinths were ready!
