THE FRAGRANCE OF SPRINGTIME
The perfume of hyacinth
is in the air.
It must be Spring!
Such an amazing flower show . . .
brilliant stalks, blazing colors
and that sweet aroma.
Did you know that each of the
many colors in which it appears
has its own unique fragrance?
Throughout history, the hyacinth
is known as the "sorrow flower",
in loving tribute of the Greek god,
Hyacinth, who ran to catch a
flying discuss thrown by Apollo,
but was struck dead by the discus
as it fell to the ground.
Well, there's nothing sad about
these colorful, fragrant beauties
blooming right now!
