What Is This ?


Yesterday was another beautiful day all though it was much cooler then it has been. The wind picked up last night  the temps dropped  and we had a full night of gentle rain that we so badly needed , now the grass is such a rich deep green and has thickened  up ! It is gloomy and cold out there today and rain on and off is to be expected  , the kind of day  to watch movies , read blogs or a book !

I was roaming  around the yard and the field beside us yesterday looking for different things to photograph and found this little guy !


I have no idea what it is all I know is I liked it so much Papa dug it up and I put it in my garden . I think it is a domestic plant cause it has bulbs for roots  . I don't think wild plants start from bulbs !


                        If anyone  knows who this pretty little plant  is I sure would like to know !


My Daffodils at the end of our drive way have opened . I love these two toned ones. Behind them are my Tiger Lilies growing like crazy !

Those are grape hyacinths and yes, they're a spring bulb. I have a bunch in my yard. Aren't they cute?

Those are grape hyacinths and I have tons of them... I just love them!... they spread rapidly and make a beautiful addition to the landscape!... xoxo Julie Marie

Jennifer is right, they are wild grape hyacinths. I didn't know what they were at first either because they were growing everywhere. But each spring I look forward to seeing them!

Thank you so much to all that helped me identify this sweet little plant ! It is now in my garden. Have a wonderful day !

Interesting to find out from your spies that the plant is grape hyacinth. Too bad that attractive plants can sometimes spread so easily that they are a nuisance.

Nellie said...

I'd agree with the others and call it grape hyacinth. Our daughter had them in her wedding bouquet last Saturday!:-)

Such pretty flowers. We are a ways off from flowers blooming, although the wild crocuses could start soon.

Denise said...

I see your grape hyacinth has been identified. We have a lot of them around here too, though none in my yard, yet :) Enjoyed your photos and always love to see the ones of Miggy. She is such a beautiful dog.

Angela said...

Definately grape hyacinth. Beautiful pictures of your flowers.

I agree with the above - it is a grape hyacinth. I have planted them in several areas around the edges of gardens containing taller flowers. The are pretty little things, aren't they!

I see I'm too late, you already know. The photos are beautiful.
