Grape Hyacinth


I take them for granted,
these obliging little blue flowers,
that colonise patches of sunshine.

I love these flowers, too. The shade of blue is so delicious.

Another of my favourites. I have some in a window box outside my kitchen that give me such pleasure whenever I'm at the kitchen sink (which is quite often!)

I love these - there are large pots of them outside my front door at the moment.

I love Grape Hyacinths - my bridesmaids carried posies of them.

Wishing you a lovely break. x

Hi, I came here via domesticali.

Just had to say that I love that line so much: "that colonise patches of sunshine". I shall think about it and smile all day.

Thank you.
