I looked up hyacinths in The Meaning of Flowers and it says: "The Koran praises the hyacinth. If you have just two loaves left ... sell one and buy hyacinths, 'to feed the soul.'" Again, how perfect!
When I was on my walk this morning, I noticed pink everywhere in our neighborhood. So I've dubbed pink nature's "it color" for spring!
One of my favorite quotes from my "color guru" Leatrice Eiseman is "nature doesn't lie" when it comes to color combinations. Look at this hot pink and yellow primrose - so pretty. I never would have thought to put these colors together... But Sofia did! She wore hot pink patent leather ballet flats with a light yellow dress on Easter.
Again, hot pink and yellow in this beautiful camellia in my frontyard.
But the sweetest of all is daphne! The lightest pink of the bunch but definitely the most fragrant.
And last but not least, the first pink blossoms we see each spring in Seattle are cherry blossoms!
