Things have gone more smoothly with the forced bulbs.This Hyacinth is a bulb kit I picked up at the grocery store. It was pretty much a no-brainer and hopefully will be blooming for the 15th. I prefer Hyacinths indoors, as their fragrance is so welcome, and I find they look awkward in the garden.
I potted up these 'Lydia' Tulips last fall and stored them in a cabinet in the garage. Last week they had sprouted and were ready to come inside. Already I can see the buds starting to swell. It won't be long now before there are beautiful Tulip blooms. I wish all indoor plants were this easy.
