Every hyacinth that has opened so far is still open, although the very first ones of the season, one of the blue shades, has grown tall and flopped over to touch the ground. We've now seen two shades of blue, two shades of pink, and some creamy pale yellow ones. There seem to be more on the way, but the waxy buds don't always reveal what the color when open is to be. They're not my favorite, but they do scent the air on mornings when it's damp. Is the scent stronger when it's dark?
