    Blessed day to you, Friend Rosemary.

    I can’t help but think of the other pairings in poetic history:

    Bread and Roses (James Oppenheim)
    Sapphires and Garlic in the mud (T.S. Eliot)
    Diamonds and Rust (Joan Baez)

    I didn’t know of Sandburg’s reference – thanks!

    I have just recently “discovered” hyacinths because a friend gave me some for Easter. I had no idea they were so fragrant! I posted a photo of my neighbor’s hyacinths today at http://defeatdespair.wordpress.com. I love the quote!
