{floral friday #48}

About a week ago I bought a pot of muscari and now they are in full bloom.
Since we don’t have a backyard to plant them in, we’re now enjoying them every time we enter the kitchen. So, so pretty! ;)

A few facts about muscari:

  • The common name is grape hyacinth.
  • Muscaris are available in the winter months/early spring, typically from January to April.
  • They are native to Asia and the Mediterranean.
  • The term muscari comes from the Latin muscus, since the scent is said to resemble musk. {source}

I’m partying here! ♥

    They are just gorgeous. A sure sign of Spring to me. We don’t have any yet…not even in the flower shops. xo Diana

    I love muscari! The blue of their blossoms is so pretty! I planted some on my lawn a few years ago, but the never came out.

    How beautiful! They are so dainty and sweet!

    My husband just asked me how to say “the cat’s away, the mice will play” in German as I was reading your post! Random, huh?

    They seem so delicate; just like the beginning of spring itself.

    Bring on the spring C: And yes, you’ve just made it so that I stop and get flowers on the way home from work.

    Oh these are so pretty and they are easy to grow. I hope you can find a pot or something to put them in after they finish blooming so you will have them for years to come!

    Hi Vanessa, my first time here. I’ve seen grape hyacinths only once in Turkey but it is the blue. Your color is so unique in gray. Even if they are from Asia they don’t grow in our country, as it is a temperate climate plant. We are in the hot-dry part of Asia.

    Pretty. We have plenty of them in the backyard. Somehow, they thrive even when our ground gets so soggy during springtime.
