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!
