Bon Weekend

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. 
Bon Weekend!

    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
