Hyacinths in bloom

Above is a picture of one of my hyacinths ready to bloom...

and here is one in bloom. I have never taken care of hyacinths before and I think they are beautiful flowers. The bulbs will bloom in future seasons with proper care. I have done some research on the net to learn more about the bulbs and the lovely flowers they produce. Funnily enough on the first page I found an article about Hyacinth Bucket (which she pronounces as Bouquet), the character portrayed by Katherine Patricia Routledge in Keeping Up Appearances. We always enjoyed that show and its re-runs : )
My husband bought me these three bulbs in a basket which I am keeping in my kitchen for the time being since there is good lighting there but I may transfer it to another room later on. Hmm, maybe I could use the flowers in full bloom for 'one of my Candlelight suppers' as Mrs Bucket would say LOL!
P.S. Sorry about the picture not being very clear.

  1. Lovely flowers indeed!
    I wish I could keep some but with Toddy around it's nearly impossible. Doreen, do you remember that beautiful plant I had planted from mum's seeds(the mother of thousands)? Well I had to put it out on our landing this Winter because of Toddy trying to eat it and unfortunately it died :( I was afraid he would have been sick if he ate any leaves because it is a poisonous plant.
    I have only artifical plastic plants now ... well those are always green LOL!
