stood close hell fire barbed wire

....a sequel...

I have acquired a second plant.

I put this one in the office, behind my desk so I can smell hyacinths all day. Also, Plant the First has perked up some. My apartment smells heavenly.

Wasn't kidding when I said I sometimes pursue these notions to the point of absurdity. All I can think about now is that I want more hyacinths. 

My Granny loved hyacinths as well. She used to grow them in a bucket in the cupboard under the stairs. In the dark. They bloomed every spring and I was convinced Granny had magic powers.  


  1. Good luck with beautiful hyacinth - it's a gorgeous colour. Grannies always have magic powers. :)
    Looking forward to what you do with the A to Z Challenge!

  2. They smell so good, even the little person next to them is smiling =)

  3. MOAR PLANTZ!!! You simply cannot have enough signs of spring after this godawful winter. Is it over yet? Are we finally done with snow? April seems years away when I look at my slush-covered yard, and seconds away when I see the comments above are linking to A-Z. You're almost done?!? I've barely started. :/

  4. I had three plants that were beautiful although the soil had gnat eggs (it was from Lowe's, apparently that is a problem with their soil, so don't get it from there!) and I kept getting gnats. My three plants are no more, unfortunately. One day I grabbed a glass of what I thought was water and poured it on the plants. Turns out it was white vinegar - I must have been delirious because I didn't smell the vinegar - and my poor plants all died in less than two days. I hope your plants have a much longer life than mine did! :)

    What a pretty colour the flowers are!

  5. Now I want to plant some next to the lavender.

    You, my dear, are a BAD influence :p
