The pleasure grounds are extremely aromatic right now, thanks to old-fashioned jonquils, narcissi, and daffodils, and to stock, and to hycinths in seven varieties so far. Honebees are attracted to the hyacinths and to milkweed. We've seen no cream- or buttery-colored hyacinths yet. We had a long run of Dutch hyacinths years ago and then they played out. Current hyacinths have been reapping for several years now. We have seen leaves of wood hyacinth, but no flowers yet.
