Everyday Luxury - Hyacinths

Are you angry & bitter because you did not force bulbs like Concha's (above) for the post-holiday blues? That is terribly unattractive, so snap out of it! Instead, look at your neighborhood market's floral department. A single potted hyacinth can be had for $3-5. If you can afford more, great, but one is all it takes to lift one's mood. (If it flops over, just cut it & place in a small jar or vase.) Heavenly. xoxo

PS: Lovely primroses are also in markets now & there are deals for 2-3 plants for $5.  Daffodils & narcissus will be available soon.
