So, it's not hyacinths.
Um. Anyway, so, it's not hyacinths, but as long as we're doing
temporally-reversed scenes, how about when the monster drowns the
little girl who's tossing the flower petals into the pool in the
Karloff _Frankenstein_? Here we have the time reversal where Dorcas
is produced from the pool, and then the flower petals.
I'm probably just seeing spectres.
