my poor hyacinths

Honestly, my poor Hyacinths don't stand a chance growing here. It used to be that my problem was slugs ans snails- they LOVE to eat the buds of the blooms before they open. They pretty much assure that my hyacinths won't get over 4 inches tall! Now, not only do I have the slugs and snails but I have a very curious 11 month old.....

Here's what they are supposed to look like:


And here's what mine look like from the slugs and snails:

Note to self: dig up Hyacinth and re-plant somewhere behind a fence.

I stopped dead in the grocery store the other day because I smelled my favorite spring flower, the hyacinth, and had to have one. I haven't grown my own yet, yours are beautiful!
