This Grape Hyacinth goes to seed in May.
Here hyacinths of heavenly blue
Shook their rich tresses to the morn.

We have some grape hyacinths in our yard. I love them. They are cute and pretty all at the same time. The first year we lived in this house I noticed a small patch of them and thought of them as precious....now they are everywhere!
Hope you are having a good day,
Stacy

P.S. We love grape hyacinths too. And we have sun spurge growing in a dry spot. Thank you for letting me know that that was called.
