Macro Monday ~ Hyacinth brings spring to the apartment

I think we all miss the flowers this time of year. In winter, hyacinths bring the spring into the apartment and make our home a delight. We buy them as potted plants or grown from bulbs in a special glass container. Their fresh scent awakens the dream of spring, and their cozy colors match any style of furnishing. The Latin name Hyacinthus is derived from the Greek word Huakinthos, the name of a young man much admired by the Greek sun god Apollo. Huakinthos was fatally injured while throwing a disc. From the blood that was flowing from his wounds grew a flower that Apollo named after a deceased friend. Hyacinths are a symbol of peace and power.
