My trip to the cemetery the other day was very fruitful, photographically, so why not an image that resembles grapes. I’ve posted a few images of these little wildflowers before. The image does nothing the relay their actual size, which, is quit small. A large bloom could be 1.5 – 2″ in height.
Years ago when I first found these little gems I did think they looked like grapes. A quick search on the internet revealed the following:
Muscari is a genus of perennial bulbous plants native to Eurasia that produce spikes of dense, most commonly blue, urn-shaped flowers resembling bunches of grapes in the spring. The common name for the genus is grape hyacinth, but they should not be confused with hyacinths.
I am admittedly clueless when it comes to flowers but I do know what I like to photograph. Each year I can’t wait for these little guys to bloom and the section of the cemetery where they sprout up is starting to get crowded. I’m hoping for a little sun today so I can return to see if any others would like their portrait captured…
