“If, of thy mortal goods, thou art bereft,
And from thy slender store two loaves alone to thee are left,
Sell one and from the dole,
Buy Hyacinths to feed the soul”
When the most frigid months and the shortest days of the year are upon us, when the warmth of the sun is infirm of purpose, and a somber blanket stretches across the darkened skies, the human spirit longs for a bit of spring. Hyacinths can be easily grown inside during these colorless months. Feed your soul with the scent and beauty of spring until the real thing comes again.
