Grape Hyacinths

Grape Hyacinths

I love these little flowers.  Even though they are called hyacinths, they are really members of the lily family.  I can see a little resemblance to lilys of the valley in how the flowers hang.  I am fortunate to have these in my front yard.  They have the tiniest bulbs and have been multiplying at a very fast pace.  In one area, I have a tiny purple forest of them that needs thinning.  I’ve also seen them sprout in places where I have not planted them – assisted by the wind or a bird, I don’t know.  Here is my lovely bouquet of them.  It stands only 3″ tall and I adore it.
