My Year in Photos 2012
My hyacinths are finally starting to pop. Yay! They smell wonderful.
how do I like the smell of hyacinths in the garden …
Gotta love a purple flower!!
Beautifully purple, I think they smell like sweet concord grapes! That’s a good thing to my nose.
Beautiful flower, and I agree that the scent is something to behold. I don’t have any in my yard anymore, thanks to the deer. I can grow the little grape hyacinths ground cover, but not the large ones.
I like the little grape ones too. I want to grow them next year.
Mmmm..I can smell them from here. I don’t have any of the large fragrant ones…only the little grape hyacinths.
We have both here, grape as well as the larger ones and the fragrance is to die for.
One of my all-time favourites for colour and fragrance.
Nothing smells as good as hyacinths. (Excpet maybe lilacs…or lily-of-the-valley…or honesysuckle…but I digress…) you’ve captured perfectly the waxy petals: if I take a deep breath, I think I can smell them from here.
I have a lilac bush and honeysuckle too. The honeysuckle smell comes right into my bedroom window. It’s fantastic.
Lovely! The flowers this spring seem especially welcome after that crappy winter. I’ve joked before about how cool a scratch and sniff widget would be for blogs, these are another reason why there should be such a thing.
OMGosh…absolutely stunning! What did you do to process this…it looks like a painting! A framer for sure!
Thanks, Tammy. I didn’t do much to it. Just played a bit with contrast. I just went out and looked at my hyacinths and they are actually much darker purple than they are in this shot.
oh, and I put a little border on it.
I love these flowers. They smell so great. They are a definite sign that spring has arrived.
