Day 55 - 'Hi'-acinths

Peg needed some spring in the house so she picked up these Hyacinths at the local grocery store on Monday. They were closed tight but started opening yesterday. Seeing all the different flower pictures on fellow blog sites gave me the urge to take some of my own. I took this one this evening. I tried using the light from the room but it washed the colours out. I decided to go to my handy iPad and the Photo Softbox app. I set the colour to pink and found it intensified the colours. As a final touch I sprayed it with water. Who says spring doesn't start until March 21st?

Beautiful - you are tempting me to buy an iPad. But no hyacinths - the smell is too strong.
