Three shades of blue

Wikipedia says: A blue flower is a central symbol of inspiration. It stands for desire, love, and the metaphysical striving for the infinite and unreachable. It symbolizes hope and the beauty of things. Nicely said!

  9. They are beautiful. In this part of Florida (central), our spring fields are covered with pink flowers which are pretty, too. In Texas, the fields are filled with bluebells.

    1. Cath, Muscari is such a strong bulbous plant! I'm curious what type you have chosen. There is a famous planting of them at the Keukenhof Gardens in Holland which is known as the Blue River.
