Spring Has Come To Our Windowsill

With a little preparation you can have spring in February.

With a little preparation you can have spring in February.

The hyacinths I forced have come into full bloom and the fragrance is intoxicating.   The Amaryllis that spent the summer in the garden have also begun to bloom.  I pot up the Amaryllis from their row in the vegetable garden as soon as they are touched by the first light frost and put them in the cellar for about eight weeks, watering sparingly, to let them rest.  I then move them into the sun as soon as a hint of growth appears.  The Hyacinth’s glory is brief but the Amaryllis will keep sending up flower stalks for many weeks.
