my parents bought us hyacinth flowers at the grocery store for our kitchen window. we couldn't keep them at home in our kitchen because of a very curious furry 8 year old who is obsessed with water in vases, so i brought them into work to enjoy. it's probably better that way since i will get to see them more in my office than i would at home. they are enjoying the sunlight on my window ledge in my office. it's nice to see a little bit of spring in mid-january!
