Remember Hyacinth Bucket? From "Keeping Up Appearances?" She was forever saying her name was not pronounced "bucket" but "bouquet." I always think of her character when my own hyacinths come up in the spring. Here's a close-up of some of our jacinthes (hyacinths) out in the back yard. I ripped up these bulbs and replanted them a number of years ago.
I planted them in a straight line and I shouldn't have. They would have looked better in a bunch. Live and learn. But they're still flowering and looking good. Yesterday I got the mole hills done, like I wanted. I also got some trimming and cleaning up done. The rhubarb is growing nicely and I'm trying to keep it watered. I sure hope we don't have a freeze. It could happen. After all, it's still only March.
And, for the record, I do not have a Mercedes, a swimming pool, or room for a pony.
