These are truly my first daffodil and hyacinth -'cause I've never planted bulbs before.

I was out working on the lot this afternoon in the rain (like the nut that I am) and noticed they'd come up.

Yep - a red one. I thought they were going to be purple.

I wouldn't have chosen hyacinths - somebody got them for me last fall along with the daffs, the tulips and some crocus.

In fact, bulbs is something I never think about buying.

Yes, it is something like being a proud parent. And there is a newborn child in our building right now - I just learned of it today. An 8 lb. girl! Yayyyyyyyyyyyy! Girls!

What a good feeling your first flower brings. Yesterday I had my first crocus bloom, a little yellow one. Couldn't of been prouder. I never planted hyacinths before, do they get very big Carly?

I love hyacinths. [Cool] They make the whole area around them smell so pretty with their perfume. Beautiful flowers. You give me hope for planting them in my yard, too, Carly! Thanks for posting the pics.

Oh, I don't really know how big they get. From what I can see by other gardens and the ones in the stores, they're about 8 inches tall, max.

Nope - didn't hold the new baby - haven't seen her in person, just pictures. But Jeff saw her - the father brought her down for him to see - I wasn't here.
