Oh thank goodness for these little bulbs. I planted them in November and have been patiently waiting for them to bloom. Finally last week, I saw my first glimpse of white. I have always planted narcissus bulbs, but this was my first year to plant the hyacinths indoors.
I always plant my hyacinths outdoors in the bed out my bedroom window and when they bloom in the Spring, at night their scent is so strong that it actually drifts into the room and perfumes the bedroom with the sweetest smells. It's heavenly.
So this Winter I decided to plant them and place them right next to the bed.
I think these should help me dream sweet dreams, don't you think?
I have several of these bulbs scattered around the house. I'm anxious to have them bloom and bring a little bit of Spring into the house.
The days have been full of sunlight here in this part of Idaho this week. When I go outside and see the sunlight glistening on the top of all the snow, it truly takes my breath away. I love the sun-filled days, but the days that are foggy bring a different kind of beautiful. Two weeks ago we had a lot of foggy nights, so in the mornings the frost was so thick on the trees and shrubs, that the garden looked like a magical fairyland.
I would love to take this opportunity to thank all those who come by and take a peek into my life and my home. I think that having a blog is a little like being an editor of a magazine. You hope that what you write and the pictures that you share will be worthwhile to those who read and those who choose to spend their time perusing your publication.
You have all become so dear to me. The messages that you leave me and the encouragement you give is deeply appreciated.
Now I need your input. This post was done in Blogger, but the two previous posts were done in Windows live writer. I would love to know which of the posts you like the best. I don't know what I prefer. I like many things about Live Writer, like larger pictures, and how you can place the pictures exactly where you want them, unlike Blogger, which loads the pictures backwards and the spacing is harder to control. I know this sounds silly, but the two posts I did in Windows LW scared me to death. I guess it's because it's new to me. I don't care about the fact that when you post in LW you don't have a picture that shows up when your post updates on other's blogrolls. I'm not sure how I would like to continue, but if you have any suggestion on how I can make this blog better, I would love to hear about it.
Thank you all for stopping by.
