More signs of early spring

Hyacinths, growing strong, make their March entrance. Despite fluctuating weather, which has included some freezing days, my bulbs are blooming nicely. The good news about an early debut is that the planter will be ready for perennials earlier too. Last summer, it took quite a while for the hyacinths to die off, which meant I had to wait till June to put in my impatiens. Maybe this year, I'll be planting them in early May. 
PS. Look what happened in just one day - after saving a draft of this post. The flowers really opened up!
