Carved pumpkins or jack-o-lanterns are a familiar decoration during the Halloween season. It brings our attention to mid-autumn and the upcoming winter.
The origin of the jack-o-lantern is from northern Europe – specifically Ireland and Scotland – where the turnip was carved instead of a pumpkin. The carved pumpkin is a tradition that began after immigrants came to United States.
Hyacinths are classic spring-blooming bulbs that have been popular for centuries, in large part because of their bright colors and fragrant flowers. The plant grows from large bulbs, typically planted in the garden in the fall.
