Well, obviously I didn't foresee this happening. It appears that my hyacinths aren't getting enough sun and are growing pretty dwarf-like. It's probably because we haven't a had a sunny day since early October, and it doesn't have enough energy to grow bigger. At least it smells heavenly and it doesn't look too bad.

I know this post doesn't have anything to do with plants but I wanted to share my trip to The Grotto Catholic Church last Saturday. This place had very nice scenery and large gist shops where you could buy necklaces, statues, and even coffee. They're obviously preparing for Christmas and are setting up Christmas lights.

I planted these Paperwhites around mid-October and they already reached full bloom. I wish they could have at least waited until Christmas. But they are pretty and they do fill the whole room with a pleasant fragrance, so I guess it's not a problem. As you can see it's kinda droopy, but that should go away I guess.

Well the grapes and meddlers are ripe and almost ready to be picked. Look how large and juicy they look, the only problem is that this year was a horrible year for the grapes because early frost and snow in May delayed the grapes and caused them to have a shorter growing season. And this year was also the first year where we jumped from winter straight into summer. It was freaky to have snow in May. My grandma said that she never saw something like that in her entire life.

In late February this year I bought a pack of cacti seeds from Wal-mart this year and decided to try to grow them. I ended up with a lot of little cacti. I decided to transplant the best looking ones in this plastic pot to grow separately from the not so goof looking ones. As you can see, they're still pretty small. I wish they'll grow faster.

About this time of year my families precious Quince tree ripens its plentiful bounty and unloads it on everything under to it, I remember some time ago I got beaned by one of those cannonballs. They're like apples except harder and more sour. My mom like to bake these in the oven until all the syrup leaks out, and then eat them with Whipped cream. It's more tasty than it looks.
