Hyacinth Sketch

I hav been having fun lately watching the hyacinths coming on. 
I have three on vases and two have blooms. I can smell them when I sit at the kitchen table.
Are any of you forcing bulbs this winter?  I am so ready for  spring to arrive. How about you?

I can smell them in your drawing that's how good it is.

My daffodils are budding, not open yet but buds getting larger.

It's spring like here already. Sun shining. High 60's ...lovely out.

This made me remember that I saw my daffies trying to come up next to the house last week. I bet they are darned nipped now.

great sketch. I had lots of luck with paper whites, but not with the other narcissus I tried to force
