Holy Hyacinths!

For some reason my Hyacinths are under the impression that spring is right around the corner. . .



They bloomed quite nicely a mere 4 months or so ago. What's it with me and over-eager bulbs? And what should I do? Cut them back? Or is this their way of siphoning off a little nourishment before the long winter ahead?
Please advise!

I'm just now reading this, but just wanted to say that this is normal behavior for grape hyacinths. Freaked me out the first time I saw it, too.

Thanks Kylee, I'm glad to hear that someone else out there has had the same experience. In the end, my grape hyacinths bloomed quite nicely this season. And now I won't be surprised come next year.
