The first paperwhite bud to open. It is not completely open yet, but the fragrance is lovely. I really should have either started them as soon as we got home from the Adventure. Then we would have had blooms at Thanksgiving. Or, if I had waited until this week, the blooms would have been open for Christmas.
Perhaps the hyacinths will show off at Christmas. I have never grown them indoors before, so I am not really sure how long they take. I can see little green points coming up from the center and the roots are certainly growing well, but they are slackers when compared to the paperwhites!
