Grape Hyacinth

The flowers are still buds, but I always love to see these bloom in the spring. Not always, but sometimes, I see my first hummingbird of the season on the grape hyacinths. I have a real thing for hummingbirds, butterflies, and hummingbird moths.

The other bulbs are growing nicely too . They are indeed rewarding plants for a gardener in the spring. I'm sure it is no small coincidence that two catalogs for spring bulbs to be ordered for next fall, came today. I've been looking at the pictures, so far my sales resistance is holding, but there's nothing like beautiful spring flowers to loosen up a gardener's credit card.
