Pretty pictures for a dreary day
It’s still winter. I don’t have much to say but I am really enjoying my bulbs this year. The differences between the various hyacinth cultivars is more dramatic than you’d think. As you can see, these City of Haarlem ones are slower to emerge, with tighter, smaller flowers. Their fragrance is very different as well, much earthier.
Then I would just point out that the Golden Rain narcissi have a longer bloom period than any I have ever grown. As they mature, you can see little orange centers (not visible here).
