I love all 4 seasons; but, since I love to work in the garden and don't much care for the cold, winter is my least favorite season. Therefore, I enjoy tricking Mother Nature into bringing a little spring inside the house in order to combat the outside dreariness, and bulbs are perfect for chasing away the winter doldrums. I picked hyacinths this year and placed them in colorful forcing vases on the window's ledge to catch the sunlight. Since hyacinths are slow to develop, it does take a little patience; but it is so worth the wait.
