I got these hyacinths for my birthday on 4th December. They were in bloom at Christmas and created an atmosphere of spring, by their sweet smell and lovely colour.

Lonely blue hyacinths.

Hyacinths are lovely (even on TV!), so that was nice present. Thank you for the comment - I have been told in another comment that it is probably a form of Azalea, which seems right to me. And, yes, it was blooming today.

Arija said...

Such a lovely blue. Isn't it amazing how the diffecent colours have such different scents?

Darla said...

Beautiful flower, happy Sunday.

Beautiful...my late mother loved them and I always bought some for her in January. I haven't bought one since she passed away but maybe I should. I do however have a beautiful amaryllis that will be blooming shortly, doesn't smell as nice though...ciao

What a lovely splash of color. I am looking for ways to add some color to my home. But alas, I have a very brown thumb so all plants must be of the silk variety. You've given me a great idea though.
