The spring flowers are always the most welcome. How pleasant the sight of brilliant beds of the Crocus and Snow Drop early in April, giving us assurance that dreary winter is over. Then close upon them, May brings us Hyacinths, with their delicate and beautiful hues and fragrance that fills the air. With them we have the gaudy Crown Imperials and the more humble variety of Frittilaria, with the Narcissus, the Pansies, Violets, and Polyanthus, and early Tulips. These all we have enjoyed before the trees have ventured to put forth a leaf or blossom. All these charming spring flowers we have named are of the easiest cultivation, and may decorate every garden large or small at a cost so trifling as to be within the reach of all. But they are sadly neglected; not because people do not admire them, or desire to have them, but because they forget to make timely preparation for them. How common it is for people to go about planting them just at the moment when they are coming into blossom, or quite as likely in full bloom.

They are told, "this is not the time;" "well," the reply is, "if we do not plant now we shall never, for we forget them at the proper time." Now let us remind those who have been admiring their neighbor's gay spring flower garden, to make note of it at once, that next September and October they may provide for the spring of 1854.

The Hyacinth is the queen of all spring flowers, and deserves not only for this, but for the ease with which it is bloomed in the house during winter, to be an especial favorite with every lover of flowers. It is not a plant that demands years of care and culture before it yields a return; for if planted in autumn, next April or May shows all its beauty in the highest perfection. We have made note of a few good varieties that beginners may do well to remember:

Single red varieties: Diebit Sabal Kanskie, the most brilliant of all the reds; Mars, next to it; Unique, a distinct purple red - very fine; Madame Ventenon; Felicitas; and Johanna Christina.

Single blue varieties: William L, very dark, almost black; Lord Nelson, also very dark; Procelain Scepter, very light and beautiful; Stoat General, azure; Franklin, light; Grand Vedette, light; and Blucher, dark.

Single white varieties: Grand Monarque, Helena, Vesta, Voltaire Grand Blanche, Hercules, and Victoria Regia.

All the above force exceedingly well.

Double red varieties: Boquet Royal, Eindracht, Perruque Royal, Panorama.

Double blue varieties: La Majesteuse, Prince Saxe Weimar, Dryshoot, and Lord Wel-lington.
