The Hyacinths by City Hall

A quick stop at the parking lot by City Hall led
me towards the colorful patch of flowering bulbs. It
wasn't until I knelt down to get a closer look and a
closer shot of the petals did I notice their sweet scent.

The hyacinth blooms filled the plot in its entirety,
there were white ones, pale violets, pink fuchsia
and deep violets. They seemed overly crowded at
first glance but careful observation revealed they
were spaced evenly apart. It must be quite an
operation for the gardeners in the Fall, but Oh!...

The reward of their alluring fragrance in the Spring!
