Should be quite a show.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAnitaSun Jan 07, 04:54:00 AM 2007You have a very pretty hyacinth glass collection, Carol! Unfortunately, my hubby does not all all like the smell of hyacinths so, that's why I do not have them indoors. What a pity...ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyNanSun Jan 07, 10:43:00 AM 2007Beautiful, beautiful!! What a lovely picture. What do you have underneath? Is it a slate insert on the wood shelf or is it a cloth?ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyearlysnowdropSun Jan 07, 02:23:00 PM 2007Let's not say you are forcing the bulbs... How about strongly encouraging with water and light! Ha!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyCarol MichelSun Jan 07, 05:32:00 PM 2007Okay, we'll go with "strongly encouraging". Nan, that is a placement turned upside down, but now that I look at it, it does look like a slate insert. I'll be posting pictures each week for GTS to show the progress of the hyacinths.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplychuck b.Sun Jan 07, 06:18:00 PM 2007Someone recently auctioned a collection of hundreds of hyacinth vases on eBay. I wish I'd thought to blog it. Sigh.I set up a hyacinth bulb about four weeks ago (for the first time). It finally has some green poking out the top. Does it always take so long for them to get started?ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAnonymousSun Jan 07, 06:42:00 PM 2007That was very creative of you. And there is a lot of very nice vases there too! Quite a collection.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAnnie in AustinSun Jan 07, 09:05:00 PM 2007Oh Carol - any one of them alone would be lovely, but collectively -WOW! We'll be checking back to see the unfolding show.Annie at the Transplantable RoseReplyDeleteRepliesReplyKiMon Jan 08, 08:54:00 AM 2007I could swear your hyacinths were red onions ;) Be very interested to see what color blooms arise from these bulbs.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAnonymousMon Jan 08, 09:06:00 AM 2007How cool! You will have to keep taking pictures to share with us as they push through and bloom! I did this once many years ago and it was so cool!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyTyped outTue Jan 09, 04:00:00 AM 2007Many thanks for your comments on my site.
