Mini Jacinthe

Mini Hyacinth

In the midst of winter
a "forced" bulb such as these hyacinths
reveal the promise of spring 

The sweet smell of these flowers 
is as fragrant as the finest Paris parfum

May spring be as lush and green as these hyacinths promise Genie.

Hello Genie,
Hyacinths have such a delicious fragrance and they scent an entire room when indoors. How could one resist one of these charming specimens in their little glass pots? Guaranteed to give a touch of Spring to any room in which they are placed. Lovely!

The glass pots really do set them off nicely.

Jeanie said...

Seeing this is inspiring me to get a bulb garden when I hit the market later today!

I like the way the shot is lit, Genie!

I happen to know that spring was a distant promise on this day—so beautifully captured by you here. (I'm craving it even more now.)

RedPat said...

You make me think that I should go out and buy myself one!

Randy said...

I love these.

Debs said...

My hyacinths are gone for the year. I look forward to their heads peeping above the soil next Spring.

There is nothing quite like walking into a room and feeling the presence of a hyacinth or a paper-white narcissus. Joe, I am hoping for a fragrant spring.

May there be many flowers this spring as it has been a rough one for many. Our azaleas should be blooming shortly and will adorn our yards with flowers.
