Another Year Older!


Hyacinths in January, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.

Are you familiar with this old proverb?

If you have only two coins,
use one to buy a loaf of bread to nourish the body,
with the other, a hyacinth to nourish the soul.

Oh, how I agree with it! I'm loving these sweetly scented, delicate blooms on my windowsill right now! I love that they bloomed just in time for my birthday!

This is a bit belated but happy birthday to you!

I hadn't heard that saying before but I like that it includes both kinds of nourishment, for the body and the soul.
