Enjoying Spring…

I hope you all had a beautiful Easter yesterday! I’ve been enjoying bringing bulbs indoors recently! One of the greatest bargains our local grocery stores have available right now, are planted bulbs ~ tulips, hyacinth, crocus are all available at a really great deals.  I picked up these fabulous glass containers that included these hyacinth bulbs for $2.60 each.

Once they are done blooming indoors, I can selectively place them outdoors in the landscape ~ the fragrance of the hyacinth bloom is incredible, so I plan to plant them close to the patio!  The vases can be used again and again!

I love how you can see the healthy roots ~ makes a statement on the kitchen countertop!

Curious what you are doing in your home while you wait for spring?

I've never seen anything like this! It's amazing! And I'll be on the lookout for these now. What fun to have them bloom indoors, too! Sweet hugs!

I have one of these and I was fascinated with the root system and how it twists and turns. I agree with you about the scent, so beautiful x

Love this idea! They look so cute and will be permeating the house with their beautiful scent. It's beginning to look like spring around here, I am so excited!

I like growing hyacinths on in glass jars, yours look nice grouped together.
