Florets - Floral Quote - # 58 - by Ngoc Minh Ngo




"Grape hyacinths are tiny blue marvels that carpet  the woodlands in mid-spring. Fill a glass full of these beauties to enjoy their clusters of tiny, urn-shaped flowers in finely drawn hues of blue at home. Though they bloom in April their spicy-grape fragrance has been described as "the perfume of clove and sun-warmed Concord grapes of late September."

It looks spectacular and I can imagine the scent from the hyacinths must be as well!
