The forced bulbs of hyacinth "Gypsy Queen" are just coming into bloom. Their color is a slightly strange mix of pink, orange, and yellow: but it looks great against the peach walls here. The waxy blossoms are intoxicating. And the scent? Intoxicatingly intoxicating.
The only drawback: just three of the five bulbs could be forced into flower. Those that didn't have little green leaves nosing up when they came out from chilling in the refrigerator never broke growth. But, oh, for those that did! More! I want more!
