Maybe I should dig up the bulb this year and plant it elsewhere to see if it will multiply. I'd like to have it on our property. We have white hyacinths growing in a few places, but no pink ones like this.
Yesterday, the French Ministère de l'Intérieur (the equivalent of the Justice Dept. and the Dept. of Homeland Security in the U.S.) modified the travel permit that all French residents need to fill out and sign to declare on their honor the purpose of any trips outside their legal residences. Now we are required to put the date and time we leave our house on the form each time we go out, and our place of birth as well as our name, address, and birth date. I haven't been out except to walk the dog in 12 days at this point.
Also yesterday, the news channels were saying that we in France will in all likelihood remain under a stay-at-home order (confinement généralisé) until about April 28. Walt is going to go out to the pharmacy tomorrow, and then he'll drive up to SuperU to pick up a hundred euros worth of groceries that we have ordered and paid for on line. He won't need to go inside the store itself. Supermarket employees will load the groceries into the trunk of the car — if all goes to plan. I'll be interested to hear about his trip when he gets back home.
