muscari in the woods and forsythia too...

Muscari-on-Long-Island

Muscari-field-on-Long-Island
I love that someone took the time to plant this carpet of beautiful blue flowers. if you drive by this wooded area too quickly, you just might miss it. I photographed this same muscari flower patch on a sunnier day two years ago. today's rainy atmosphere seemed to bring out the flowers brilliant color. also known as grape hyacinth, these perennial plants are a favorite of mine.

I have never seen anything like that!
A sea of muscaris! Any scent?

Alexa said...

Absolutely gorgeous! Love the way your eye follows all that blue . . . to that bright patch of yellow.

HI Lily, I have a fondness for grape hyacinths also but have never see a patch that large, they are beautiful. I can just barely see the Muscari peeking out of the sea of flowers, they are themselves quite beautiful but very deadly.

My first thought when I saw the picture was "Bluebonnets??". Very beautiful flowers and I learned something new today!

I thought about bluebonnets, too. This photo looks so much like Texas in the spring - makes me really homesick! Very lovely.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
