These hyacinths came up almost overnight. They are old friends and constant.
It is exciting to watch as the petals unfurl almost in real time.
"If, of thy mortal goods, thou art bereft,
And from thy slender store two loaves
alone to thee are left,
Sell one & from the dole,
Buy Hyacinths to feed the soul"
- Muslihuddin Sadi,
13th Century Persian Poet
