“Spanish Bluebells” – Hyacinthoides hispanica – Spring 2013 – Whitney Avenue – Wilkinsburg, PA

“A Plant a Day till Spring” will highlight one plant a day, starting on the winter solstice (December 21, 2013)… And ending on the vernal equinox (March 20, 2014)… If all goes to plan I will be starting with old Snowdrop photos from 2013… And ending with new photos of Snowdrops in 2014…

Hyacinthoides hispanica… Known by the common names “Spanish Bluebell”, and “Wood Hyacinth”… Is a spring-flowering bulbous perennial… It is considered invasive in many areas including the UK…

It is a cold day here in Pittsburgh… A Monday… And the temperature is going down to -10 F. tonight… I don’t feel like writing at the moment… Instead… I’ll leave you with a poem I wrote last spring… May 8th, 2013 to be exact… One of my favorites…

Among the Wood Hyacinth

Laying among the wood hyacinth… Scattered among the leaves… Enjoying the scattered rain showers… Blown in the lilac breeze…

Cherry blossoms fall like snowfall… And apple blossoms drop in the rain… While sitting in the sunshine… My metaphysical gain…

Steady rain will soon arrive… To conquer the tulip petals… Dandelion floaters flutter and fly… But soon they’ll gently settle…

In the back of my mind… The rules break and bend… Plan for the springtime… The season never ends…

The seasons all about beginnings… Breaking new ground… In the city I am lost… In the garden I am found…

And the forest is my heaven… My temple of praise… A place to write poems… A place to smoke haze…

And drink my cup of coffee… With my birds and bees… The only time that I feel right… Is hanging with the trees…
