So, it's not hyacinths.

Oh.  Hyacinth.

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.
