It's Beginning to Look Like Spring!

An update on my kitchen:  It now has lights - pot lights in the ceiling, lights under the top cabinets and lights in the cabinet that will have the stained glass fronts.  The stove and dishwasher were delivered last Saturday.  The sink and faucet have been purchased.  Now we just have to decide what we want for our counter top and get that ordered.  Things are moving along nicely.

Since I haven't had much time for quilty things, I thought I would show you the colours in my garden.  These are my hyacinth.  I never realized how many colours these things come in until I started to plant them in my garden.  Here is a nice blue one.  (Sorry, some of the pics are a bit blurry, but you get the idea.)

 And a nice pink one.  I have several bunches of these.

A dark purple one.  I really love this colour!

 A pretty white one.

This one is a light blue one.  I don't know what it will look like when it is in full bloom, because I just bought it last weekend.  But I think it will be pretty.  As I was scootering around the neighbourhood this afternoon (to get to the voting station - Canada is electing a new prime minister or maybe not), I noticed some pretty light salmon ones.  They will be my mission for next year.

I just love the smell of hyacinths. Good news to hear the kitchen work is progressing nicely now. Can't wait for photos of the finished project.
