Muscari Malarkey



Muscari ......Also known as Grape Hyacinth - a small spring flower, most commonly blue.

Malarkey ......Meaningless nonsense - one of my top ten favourite words of all time.

At this time of the year, when the sun isn't always shining, it is a joy to see the gorgeous  Muscari flower......

  4. Such pretty blooms!! I planted the white ones and they only came up once. I'm gonna try the lavender-blue ones which might be hardier. Cheers!
