Seeing bright, deep periwinkle-colored "muscari," (also called purple hyacinths), for the first time was enchanting.
After seeing how lovely they were, I wanted some for the little round flower garden in the front yard.
So a couple of years ago, I planted some muscari in the garden bed.
They came up but sparingly.
This spring, however, they have multiplied and look soooo pretty.
There are a few tulips in the bed, too, and a couple of daffodils.
The squirrels de-headed two of them so I mixed cayenne pepper with water and poured it on the remaining tulips.
Hope it works as a deterrent to those dreadful squirrels and the havoc they cause.
Despite warnings of possible frost, pansies were planted in several pots.
The perky blooms make me smile every day.
For however long they last, they are just gorgeous!
HAVE YOU EVER PLANTED "MUSCARI?"
