The return of my Hyacinth
As of today we are exactly 56 days away from the Persian New Year known as Norouz. The front plant that you see in the picture above is a purple hyacinth that I bought last year from our Haft Seen. I decided to keep it and cut down the leaves once the flower was gone to see if the bulb would re-sprout this year.
With this said, I have to confess to you that I have a brown thumb, yes, I am really good at killing plants even though I really love plants and flowers. So after Norouz I placed the pot outside and sure enough, out of sight out of mind. Then about a month go I noticed that it started sprouting. I wonder if the flowers are going to be as big as last year. This is what it looked like last year:
I think the leaves look much fuller and better this year…I am so excited about this, I can’t even begin to tell you. I can’t wait to see the flowers!
