I love how tight-lipped these tiny flowers are. They barely open up for a bee or small flying insect to come in to sip their nectar. I haven't seen any pollinators on them yet, but they've only just arrived so I imagine the insects will find them out soon enough Hyacinth are so beautiful and fragrant that I'm sure it won't be long before they have fairy visitors.
Do you know the art of Cicely Mary Barker? She has made beautiful flower fairy art that I just love. Above is Polyanthus and Grape Hyacinth. I have the Complete Book of Flower Fairies on my book shelf, and I can't wait to share it with the grandgirls.
In the LanguageofFlowers.com, the hyacinth, dependant upon color, may mean: constancy (blue); I’m sorry, please forgive me, and/or sorrow (purple); playfulness, sport or play (red or pink); loveliness, I’ll pray for you (white); and jealousy (yellow). Today, I give you the gift of constancy through my flowers, the Hyacinth.
