I do like the scent and bountiful flowers of hyacinths but I can’t help thinking there is a major flaw in the way they flop when they bloom. It does grate on me to see them lounging about prostrate.
One day I will remember to stake them as they grow; with these white ones I resorted to cutting the flower stems and placing in water, though I know they won’t last as long this way.
They are combined with some forced narcissi and some catkins (male) and cones (female) from a nearby tree- probably an alder, though don’t take my word for it as my ability to identify trees is not what I’d like it to be.
It’s lovely to see spring flowers creeping into people’s In a Vase on Monday offerings. This is such an exciting time of year for gardeners as the days lengthen and the bulbs poke out of the ground. See what everyone else is posting to the meme over on Cathy’s blog Rambling in the Garden.
