Hyacinth 

Favourite flowers.
If I scroll through my photos there is always a predictable seasonal progression of flowers.

At this time of year it’s hyacinths.

I love them so much.

The colours. The delicate individual flower heads crowded onto a stem.

And best of all the scent. Heady and glorious.

Before Christmas I had one on my office and every morning when I opened the door it made me smile.

“If thou of fortune be bereft,
and in thy store there be but left
two loaves, sell one, and with the
dole, buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.”

John Greenleaf Whittier
