I can almost smell those gorgeous hyacinths from here! We are in the rain too, and I've just posted about it, but here it's a novelty!

Looking through the rain yesterday, I realized spring had arrived in the first fuzzy green on the winter bare bushes and trees!

It's so nice to look outside and see colors starting to show. We had quite a bit of rain here yesterday and strong winds, a sure sign if spring in east TN.

Vicki, I like that very first photograph very much. It somehow reminds me of some of the Pre Raphaelite painters's work.

OH glorious spring flowers! I just adore that first photo... Thank you!

What a joy to see your Spring flowers. As the song goes... 'I'm still waiting!' apart from the Hellebores.

I’ll start with my usual refrain – I am behind but I read all your back posts. You posted so many beautiful photos – snow, flowers, etc. I really enjoyed your photos of lilies – the flowers look so crisp.
We never did get a day of snow in Georgia this year – too bad. A belated birthday to you too. The meal looked delicious. My birthday is in about a week but I don’t think my husband would cook a meal like that for me. I think we’ll have to find a restaurant.

I did get a couple of hyacinths growing in water vases. They smelled so sweet. Now their flowers are gone. What should I do with the bulbs? Will they grow again next year if I place them again in water? I know you are a gardener.

The hyacinths were a surprise -- I hadn't noticed the leaves coming up and them, boom! there they were.

Vagabonde -I think that the hyacinths would need to spend time in the dirt, gathering nourishment to rebloom. You could plant the bulbs in a pot and fertilize. Don't cut the foliage and give them at least a half day's sun till the foliage dies back and they might rebloom next year.

I've been so busy that I've not done much blog visiting either but I'll catch up with you all eventually.

I'm glad to share in your touches of spring, there are so few here yet... it rains, it's grey and I have flu!
