January 3, 2012: Hyacinths To Feed Thy Soul

January 3, 2012

Hyacinthus orientalis
Hot damn, the blue French Roman hyacinths are emerging!  That was cause enough for the Head Gardener to join me in a happy dance.  She's generally of a more sober temperament but the woman does love (1) blue flowers and (2) the fragrance of hyacinths.   We hope that having had a year to settle into their environs will encourage them to bloom more lavishly than they did last year.  Even if they don't, there will still be dancing when they bloom.
