Hyacinths

Hyacinths perfume the air around them.

It's beginning to smell like spring!

The white ones were on sale, so I brought some home,

to sit beside the computer.

I am green with envy! We have no hyacinths yet. We won't for another few months at least! I think I will buy a pot if they have them at the market just so I don't get to crazy waiting.

Hi Judy, thank you for your photo compliments. We have a similar style when it comes to bare trees and planets, don't you agree? Have a good weekend. I will visit again.

Oh, I can smell them! Oops, those are mine. Not nearly so petty as yours, though!!! Thanks for visiting My (frozen, snowy) Muskoka !
And, I broke my axe handle. No more chopping...argh.

Beautiful. Once again I lament that they have not yet invented "scratch-and-sniff" computer monitors.

Your flowers, all of them, are lovely. You have the camera-eye. Also love the sky photos and of course, Miss Kitty...aren't the hyacinth fragrant.? I love them too and cannot wait for the smell of spring all around me.
God Bless

Has spring knocked on your door? The Hyacinths with their waxy petals, scenting the air are a must have in early spring; I used to love them in Switzerland where I experienced long winters. The colours are gorgeous, everything is very neat about these plants. I also love your header with the Lilac tree and misty background. I even can smell them, amazing! This picture is very powerful in its subtleness.
