Spring Hyacinths





 

 



 

Couldn't pick a favorite shot...
...so I gave you them all.

It was a beautiful sunny and very warm day here in New York.
Tomorrow, they say...
...we are back to normal spring temperatures.
...and rain.
(I guess I'll unpack my suitcase!)

Lots to do at home this weekend...
how about you?
:)

Oh your hyacinths are so beautiful- especially against the backdrop of gorgeous turquoise blue wood!

I can practically smell that awesome bucket of awesomeness.

Have a wonderfull weekend. We're expecting rain too, here, but I guess it makes things green and grow. Wish it would only rain during the work week, though, yes?

Your photos are beautiful! I just love the color combination of the flowers against the weathered wood.

These are such pretty pictures of your beautiful hyacinths. Such a nice container you chose. That's the perfect backdrop too! Enjoy your rainy day!

Al said...

Your images are beautiful! I can almost smell those hyacinths. Yes, the weather has been sweet all week here (I'm a NYer too). This weekend it is supposed to rain, so we'll probably do some indoor Spring cleaning. Have a wonderful weekend. -Al

Those are gorgeous, Laura. You are really doing a good job with your big girl camera!!!

I was so sorry to read about your cousin. Such sadness! It must be hard to have this happen around the anniversary of your mom's death. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Fondly,
Suz

Oh Laura,
We are definitely on the same wavelength ..... I have just been given a white cyclamen which I put in my french enamel 'sucre' container.
Your hyacynths look so pretty and the enamel containers are perfect for showing them off.
Enjoy the weekend. XXXX
