I have one hyacinth. It is surprising it is blooming at all. Here's the short version story of this pretty plant.

A year and 1/2 ago, I bought a single bulb from a nursery. It came with a glass vase where you put the bulb in the narrow neck of the jar and put it on your windowsill. Well, the bulb never did anything and it started to rot. So, I buried it outside. In short order it started to sprout. I was amazed. Just as it was reaching some good height, a squire came along and literally pulled it out of the ground, breaking the roots. Just for the heck of it, I stuck it back in the hole, figuring it would die for sure.

A little later, it caught on again and came to full bloom! I was amazed again (by now I am running out of "amazed"). Then of course, it died away completely. Well, low and behold, because of the tons of rain we've been having, my one and only hyacinth came back up! I am a m a z e d! Ahhh, the wonder of nature! I highlighted it to show it better.
