A similar thing happened recently with these hyacinths. I had never seen them in this pale pink before and I didn’t know they grew in a long-stemmed variety.
A third recent discovery of mine is that the hydrangea bush (that’s been outside all the years I’ve been living here) turns pink in the fall. I had never noticed.
But I always notice the cherry blossoms in spring.
Sometimes you need to get a flower fix at the grocery store.
And sometimes they are growing right outside your door.
Sometimes they are bleeding hearts
Or broken hearts.
…sometimes they are peonies.
