New beginnings . . . . .

hyacinth I had a beautiful pot of hyacinths given to me at Christmas.  They arrived with just a bit of large, swelling bud peaking from each of  the leaf clusters.  Sitting in a light spot on the dining room window sill, and after only a few days,  they have burst forth in a glorious profusion of blue and purple tinged flower heads.  Rebirth from papery, wizened bulbs.

The flowers are filling the room with their perfume –  they had to be painted!  Pity I can’t some how convey the  wonderful scent of them . . .

by Saadi  (Persian poet)

IF OF THY MORTAL GOODS thou art bereft,

And from thy slender store two loaves alone to thee are left,

Sell one, and with the dole

Buy hyacinths to feed thy soul
