It's the end of March, 2002 and the hyacinths are in bloom, with their wonderful fragrance perfuming the garden.  I actually have hyacinths popping up in places that I didn't know I had hyacinths!

It's mid-April 2003 and the first of the hyacinths has begun to bloom.  Given the winter, it's no surprise that things are a few weeks later than last year!  The hyacinths have done a good job reproducing; where there had been one, there are now two or more.
