When you have only two pennies left in the world,
buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.
– Chinese Proverb
The only thing that gets me through winter in New York, besides a warm weather trip, is buying flowers every week. We’re lucky here to have them available at every corner bodega and right now the hyacinths are out. If you’re feeling the winter blues, I highly recommend buying yourself some blooms this weekend and bonus points for buying some for a friend.

Happy Weekend! Hope it “blooms” with
lots of fun and happiness!
yes so cheerful! My narcissus bulbs I have in shallow dishes with gravel in my apartment are about to bloom. I can’t wait!
Have a great weekend Heather! My narcissus are blooming in abundance!

The original prose is oh, so poetic:
“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.”
… Muslihuddin Sadi, 13th century Persian poet
Hi Heather, The flowers are triumphant and spring is on the way. Stay warm. Mary
