Grape Hyacinth

I had seen the pictures of Grape Hyacinth in several blogs and always amazed by its shape and resemblance to grapes. When I saw this flower I was doubly amazed by its size. I had never imagined it to be so tiny, the spikes holding the flower is just a few centimeters tall.

Each flower is held in a close or loose spiral around a central stalk. They looked like purple beads strung in a green stem. The mature flowers were less tightly spaced. A couple of shots here of this delight.

    They're one of my favourite spring flowers. And it's true that when you see them in photographs, there's no real telling just how small they are.
