Blue love story

Blue flowers made us think of the story of the beautiful friendship between Apollo The Sun God, and the young Hyacinthus, who was as graceful as a woman and as straight and strong like a pine tree.
When one day, the jealous Zephyr interfered their play, and a thrown quoit struck the young Hyacinthus upon the forehead. Apollo ran toward him and raised him in his arms, but the head of Hyacinthus fell over on Apollo’s shoulder, like the head of a lily who’s stem is broken. “Would that I could die for thee!”, Apollo said. “I shall never forget you. Wherever I go I shall sing songs to my harp in your praise and you shall life as a flower that will speak to men of everything young and beautiful.”
Then from the blood that dropped at Apollo’s feet rose a cluster of blue flowers, symbolising their love.

“AT HIS FEET ROSE A CLUSTER OF BLUE FLOWERS, SYMBOLISING THEIR LOVE_______.”
