Sweet Fragrance

Little hyacinth blooms were popping up in the garden.
I  move this cupful about the house with me to so I can continually sniff their perfume.

I've got a pot of hyacinths, too, that were a gift from a friend. The aroma is drifting out to me as I type. Every little sniff tells me spring is here.

I bought some this year for the first time...they smell wonderful and I will always have them from now on! Beautiful pictures.

Such sweet little blooms! The neighbor across the street has some blooming - I need to walk over and enjoy the fragrance!

Carol @ There's Always Thyme to Cook said...

So pretty! The scent and the color. If I close my eyes I can just imagine the scent!

Happy Spring!

Hi Lorraine- I tried to post before and got knocked offline! Anyway, your hyacinths are lovely. I think the snow plow took my own "out" by accident this year. I love them. Guess I will have to enjoy yours now! Sure wish I had a Scratch-and-Sniff screen!;>) xxoo Diana

They look so cute in the cup. Great mosaic. A screen with scent would be great now:)

Maggie Ann said...

What a sweet thing to do! I'll have to try that..we have a hyacinth just coming into bloom. Your photos are great. Also, thanks for the nice comment you left me on my art blog....'my star wand' was more ? than talent, believe me....lol.

Beautiful and what a terrific quote. I'm going to have to remember it or else I may despair.

Wow, that is a wonderfully saturated shade of purple! I could almost conjure up how sweet they smell!

Oh, what a lovely presentation of those deep purple hyacinths...and you are absolutely right; they smell so wonderful!
Thank you so much for sharing your beauty with us~

Lovely! Looks so pretty in your cup!

Vivienne said...

can't tell you how much i adore the first photo...gorgeous hyacinth in that cup and saucer! makes me want to move into a house with a garden (or dress up my apartment balcony!)

Tammy said...

Such sweet little blooms. Happy birthday to your mom. The birthday menu sounds delish! Poor Raider -- sitting so pretty and getting nothing in return. :( Happy Spring to you! :) Tammy

Melissa Miller said...

Oh how beautiful!

Ann said...

Gorgeous pictures. I absolutely love the smell of hyacinths. Every year when they bring in the spring flowers I make sure they set some up by the bakery department so I can smell them all day long.

Sandy said...

I just love hyacinths and the smell is so
wonderful, fills any room with joy. Your
pictures are beautiful.

Pondside said...

I would move that wee bouquet around with me too, if I had it in my house. Gorgeous colour and very pretty container.

Holly said...

The scent, the color the beauty of these little beauties. What a gorgeous post

Paula {Salad in a Jar} said...

You really do move them around the house? What a great idea because they do smell fabulous. God knows how to mix up perfume, doesn't he?

Having joined Mosaic Monday this week I am now enjoying blog hopping around the world admiring everyone else's beautiful photography and gaining inspiration. It cheers me when so much of the world around us is in turmoil for one reason or another.

I love your arrangement, thanks for the idea :)

Dayle said...

They are magnificent! You can't beat God's art.

Thanks for the peek at spring. Here in western NY I am looking out my window at 3 inches of snow and still falling.

gnee @ Singing With Birds said...

How delightful, your cupful of purple! I'm catching up too. We are tending grands in the middle of nowhere and I drop the kids at school and then take my MacBook to the library to check in. My posts are lacking for sure! Your birthday party was delectable too. Loving your mom's 13 too!!!

Julie Harward said...

I love your cup of Spring beauty...I have to say though that last year, Spring did skip us! It went right from winter into summer and then it rained every other day. I am so hoping that we will get a Spring this year! I want a cup of that too! ;D

Donna Heber said...

Your hyacinth's are just gorgeous! I wish spring was on it's way here. Your collage is beautiful.

Mary said...

Oh so beautiful, Lorraine! I can almost smell them. We got more snow yesterday, so this is such a welcome sight today. Thanks for sharing your talent at MM. :)
