The floral theme for this week is Muscari or as they are commonly known grape hyacinths. 

Muscari are easy to grow in pots or in a border and works beautifully as a cut flower. You plant the bulb in the autumn and they are some the earliest bulbs to flower in the spring. The bulbs naturalise, easy to look after and will flower year after year.

All images are from the Flickr group Flowers and Vintage that I moderate. There are links back to the photographers Flickr page as well as their blog and/or their web page.


I hope you liked the Muscari images.

Thanks for visiting and I'll see you back here very soon.

xoxo Ingrid

Thank you, Ingrid, for this little Muscari feast. It will be a little while still before we see them in Central Park, but some florists have already shown us some beauties.
