The traditional Grape Hyacinth- Muscari armeniacum. It grows freely, but in moderation, in the woodland part of my garden. I've never had to control it. I wonder if it's more tame in shadier conditions 🤔 #muscari #grapehyacinth #muscari-armeniacum

Certainly isn't tame in my garden. I've been pulling them out for 17 years!

Morning, trying to catch-up with everyone as been a little busy these last couple of weeks. Had a spare 5mins at the weekend and I noticed my #Muscari bulbs are now flowering down in the wild woodland part of the garden, amongst the shrubs. Signs of #spring everywhere 😊🌱 #grapehyacinth #muscari-armeniacum

Morning everyone 👋🏼☕️ - off to the garden centre soon for some pots, but in the meantime here are some #blue #muscari still flowering near my woodland path. I'm sure there were more last year though 🤔 #grapehyacinth #muscari-armeniacum

The contrast between the soft flowing flowers and the hard treescape behind is really interesting in this photo. Nice job!

I've had it about 3 years - for the first year it sat there doing nothing, was too scared to use it 😂 but then I read the manual and a couple of books and just started practicing since. I'm sure there is much to learn and more functions on it that I would ever use, but getting the hang of it now. I went travelling in Canada last year and took over 3000 photos (as practice of course 😂) @latebloomer

Lovely pic. I don't know what happened to mine this year-some are out and nearly over and some have just pushed through the soil. Must be down to this mad weather we have in the South🙄

Yeah, it's been a strange winter 🤔 - the foliage on these has been out for ages, weeks in fact, but the flowers are only now just coming through. Not many yet though. Barmey weather! @lyndag

I worry I'll get everything planted up then frost will come and obliterate it all😕
