Sometime early in March I bought these Hyacinth bulbs in a glass vase from the supermarket. They bloomed on my window seal smelling heavenly and easing my winter blues.
When their time passed I put them in a Hypertufa planter I made some time ago.
As I laid them to rest in the fresh soil I said a prayer and loved them once more for their presence and without any expectations kissed them goodbye.
Few days ago I watched them in awe blooming in despite the freezing temperatures we have experienced lately.
I felt as if Nature was gifting me for a good deed . According to Tess Whitehurst Hyacinths represent” Abundance and Luxury, Attracting Gifts, Charm and Irresistibility, Glamour, Influence” . Just in time for the Holidays.
In another description of these flowers I found out its pink color invites one to playfulness and recreation. And oh yes after a hard working summer I so needed to hear this. It never ceases to amaze me how Gaia delivers the medicine you need, always. I craved playtime for months and just when I forgot to smile the cycle of Gratitude bloomed with wisdom and beauty in my heart again.
What messages are you getting? Do you listen ? Nature is in constant dialog with us.
It is time we pay attention.
