Grape Hyacinth

Posted by
Sugata (Lake Forest, United States) on 26 April 2009 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Grape hyacinths are a group of plants in the genus Muscari of plants native to Eurasia that produce spikes of blue flowers resembling bunches of grapes. There are about forty species.
These ones were shot in my neighbour's garden in Newark, New Jersey yesterday. The flowers are really tiny, yet so beautiful!

Spring blossoms here are overwhelming. I'll keep posting pictures of flowers for the next few days.

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
