Jewel tones

After almost 12 weeks of cooling in the refrigerator, the hyacinth bulbs are ready for forcing.

The three different varieties have slightly different colored bulbs: "L'Innocence" is white, "Gipsy Queen" is tinged with pink, and "Lady Derby" is a deep purple. But right now, the best part is just enjoying the bulbs in their glass forcing vases. And, if they bloom, great!

The colours in this picture are so beautiful! :)

I tried to store a few bulbs over the winter last year, and that definitely didn't work. Plus, I have only one sunny window (which I talked about in one of my posts), which doesn't help for indoor forcing. :(

Love the blog, stop by and check mine out if you like :D
