Grape Hyacinths

Grape Hyacinth, otherwise known as Muscari, are actually not Hyacinths at all. They are members of the Lily family, and are native to the Mediterranean area and Asia Minor. These are growing against my brick wall here at the cottage.

The wild violets are coming up all over the front lawn and are another sure sign that spring has sprung.

Love how they both spread.

And you don't even mention your pretty clover.

where in the world do I find wild violets and those other things?

I think they would grow in California?!!?

I love the grape hyacinths. I had them in a pot this year and plan to transplant them to the garden in hopes they'll spring up 'wild' next year. You are so lucky to have so many beautiful flowers popping up on your property.
