Most of us call these flowers grape hyacinths, but I thought I’d pretend to be educated and give them their proper name of muscari!

I came across a bank peppered with them when I was walking by a stream today. The sun was hitting them, although we’d had drizzle earlier. The intense blue-mauve against the bright green and the brown earth just invited a photo. Plus their attitude!

So I’m afraid this is another haiku. But it’s such a lovely form to write in, with syllables of 5, 7 and 5.
