Spring - Hyacinth in bloom

Last October I went to the Williamsburg Pottery with my mom when I was in Virginia for a visit and we saw daffodile and hyacinth bulbs on sale. I came home and tried to force bloom them and the daffodiles did ok just a little leggy and a couple of blooms around Christmas but I forgot to take a picture of them until after they were past their peak.

I put the hyacinth in water the same time in early November and I have had only roots since then but then this past week I saw a little color peeking out of the bulb and I was so surprised and happy about it's appearance. What can make you happier than a peek at spring and a wonderful smell. I know some of you do not like the smell of hyacinths but I love them and feel so blessed to have it bloom for me. I thought I would share with you since I had a spring theme going here.

I guess you did notice I made a cute tag to put on it. I used the new Nature Walk flower in the occasions mini catalog and used my Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive markers to color in the flower. Thanks for stopping by.
