Snow & Hyacinths

The snow on Saturday put a stop to any plans to work outside.  Well, it’s a convenient excuse anyway.

Here are some hyacinth shoots poking out of the ground under a hinoki (Japanese false cypress) bush cultivar.  Like other early spring bulbs such as tulips, a little snow doesn’t bother hyacinths.  There are more coming up to the right, but they are covered by the snow.  These are festival hyacinths, which have a looser cluster of flowers than the ones that you usually see and thus are a little less formal.  I love the scent of hyacinths, so I planted  these next to the front door so that I can smell them every time I go in or out of the house.
