Hyacinth Bowl for Christmas


I received a bowl of three blue Hyacinths for Christmas from one of my lovely customers this year. What an amazing gift! We have so enjoyed watching the flowers grow, and now that they are open-the scent! The fragrance is all over the house and its beautiful, smelling almost like honey. These are one of the best presents I have ever had. I think I must have another try at making Hyacinth soap this year.
