Hyacinths to feed the soul

Hyacinths in our garden
Photo by John Hanlon

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.

My goodness, they are beautiful! We have daffodils flowering, which is really early for us, but no hyacinths this year. I think the bad weather last Winter (2010) really did for a lot of our bulbs. Must get some more planted this Autumn. What a gorgeous display, thanks for sharing. Maddy x
