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.
