Winter and Spring are still going at it mano a mano. We got two inches or so of April showers but of the frozen white kind. They are supposed to bring May flowers as the saying goes.
These are grape hyacinths sticking through the snow along our front walk..
These plants originally came from my Mom's garden in Minnesota and we took them to Maine the first time we lived here and then to New Jersey and now back here to Maine.
Muscari is a genus of perennial bulbous plants native to Eurasia that produce spikes of dense, most commonly blue, urn-shaped flowers resembling bunches of grapes in the spring. The common name for the genus is grape hyacinth. [Wikipedia]
