Blue Hyacinths


Blue Hyacinths (Hyacinth)

Pity this wasn't "smellyvision" as some wiseacre once remarked or we would all be reeling from this little bowl of Blue Hyacinths....too heady for some folk I know - but nevertheless another welcome cheery corner - at this time of year.

Yes - just five little bulbs and the resulting scent fills the house. My poor lady-wot -does (since I no longer can!) has to remove them forthwith - as she can't cope and remarked yesterday that apart from the perfume being SO strong - they remind her of funerals!!!!!

I love them too, better than any air freshener. They do get up your nose.

Very true Homebird - looked good in the bathroom too...LOL
They have just finished flowering and there are some secondary buds appearing...which is a nice bonus!

Lucky you. Mine have only ever flowered the once.

Yes - I got a surprise too!! I had sent some baskets from T&M this past Xmas to friends and they reported that theirs all did a double flowering too.....so there must be a new strain that does this.....being an Aberdonian - I am all for it ...LOL

Such a heavenly heady scent, I usually plant mine after flowering in the garden with mostly positive results;0)

Oh yes PP...definitely - they will all go outside - when there is an outside I can reach...LOL At the moment we are ringing hard with permafrost..:;<<(((
Last night was -7C and already tonight we are -5C when will this ever end!!
