Hyacinths, purple and sweet, have blossomed in the front garden.
They are always a sign of April to me, also a wisp of hope after a long winter.
This year, they are blooming quite early but are still a delight to see.
Hyacinths have long been a source of inspiration.
Centuries ago these words were written:
“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”
― Moslih Eddin Saadi
It is one quote that has stayed with me since high school.
