This would have been quite the unexpected treat, Kathleen! :-)


I have never seen that formation (blooming just out of the bulb) before. Fascinating! When you transplant it outside, do you plant the Hyacinth bulb immediately after the bloom is done? Or do you let it sit out of water/soil for a while? I've never transplanted a forced bulb before.


What a gorgeous shade of pink. :)


Gorgeous blossoms and their fragrance is heavenly. I can understand why you don't have the heart to throw them out after they bloom.


That is the most beautiful tone of pink! For two years now, my forced hyacinths did not come up. Darn!


Well, it's a pretty fab color! I love the hyacinth bulb~a little more then I actually like the flowers. They make me think of a water color~Hoping spring arrives soon for you Kathleen. gail


What a warmhearted story! It heals my heart.
I think you can enjoy these flowers very much. Pink color of these flowers is very cool.



I wanted to email you in regards in any possible advertising opportunities you may have with your website. I'm looking to earn support for a national cause and get visibility for the "plant 1 billion trees" project. Shoot me an email back and let me know if you would be interested at all in supporting this cause or if you want more information on it. I look forward to talking to you soon!


Wow - that is beautiful. Haven't seen that shade of pink in a Hyacinth but I'll be looking for it now. I am so glad you rescued these bulbs and glad you are putting them in your yard...way too pretty to toss out.
