A Breath of Spring

The ancient prophet had a good point when he suggested selling one of your two loaves of bread to buy hyacinths for food for the soul.

I brought these into the house for the beauty and the fragrance. The hyacinths forced in water and stones that I gave away at Christmas were well received. It's a joy to watch a beginning bud turn into flowers over a month's time.

I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
