Grape Hyacinths

Grape Hyacinths are not native wildflowers but have become so widespread and have naturalized themselves so successfully they are a welcome sight in the early spring. Here they are usually even ahead of the Satin Flowers pictured yesterday and they have one advantage - on their sturdy stems they are much easier to photograph when it's windy. These were growing only a few feet away from the Satin Flowers pictures yesterday. What's up next? There's still no sign of the Giant Fawn Lilies or Shooting Stars but sometime soon they'll start appearing.
