Wednesday's Flower

Grape Hyacinth

Wednesday's Story

I’m sitting in my kitchen…

As I write Wednesday’s story, wanting to absorb this delicate, springtime flower. This flower has a personality that reminds me of the Yorkshire Terrier. It thinks and acts like a Great Dane; small and petite but carries itself large. This dainty and vibrant flower awakens me every time I walk into the kitchen, especially with its soft, sweet aroma. Also, it is a wonderful reminder to be grateful for springtime.
