Spring Bulbs In Snowfall

Robin Wood Flowers In The Snow

So far, January has been well . . . January.   6 inches of snow, temperatures in the single digits, clouds, and cold feet.

Hyacinth With Pussy Willow In Bloom

Amaryllis "Desire"
Spring, though, has blossomed in the greenhouses of Holland so we’re surrounded by April here in the shop.  Nothing like the smell of a hyacinth when it’s cold and gray outside.  In fact, all of the bulb plants are bursting with color – daffodils, hyacinth, tulips, tiny muscari and enormous amaryllis are in their glory now.
