BLUE GRAPE HYACINTHS
Paul's cousin Lisa and her family were visiting this past weekend. We were walking around the garden and I was saying how great the neighbors are around here. The words had barely left my mouth when my neighbor Lynn from down the street yoo-hooed over the fence and offered us pots of flowering bulbs. Lynn is an avid gardener and had been forcing hundreds of plants for the Philadelphia Flower Show. Some of them just didn't make it, peaking too soon or not maturing fast enough and these were the ones she was giving away. This lush muscari armeniacum is a bit past its prime but still fascinatingly beautiful. Not bad for an "also ran"!
