mid-January 2020

We're coming to the end of the forced hyacinths but a few are still in bloom and a few more to come but only a few. One of the final hyacinths with two stems, some large Dutch crocus in bloom and a few muscari.

Not sure those vases on the right will bloom but I'll give them a week or so.

a few days later and some of those hyacinths have bloomed nicely, the blue vase is actually a different one than the one above

the hyacinths in the bulb bowl are looking good - after they were moved in a better bowl - one with a proper lid that doesn't hold the bulbs too far from the water

those final hyacinths in bud, I'll have to see if they actually bloom
