The purples

Continuing yesterday’s
flowery mood
today I’m paying tribute
to the little purples,
harbingers of Spring.
They’re the first flowers
that appear after winter
and I know when I see them
Spring is round the corner.
I admire their minuscule
delicate beauty.
Can you blame me?

They will grow anywhere!
Next to a pavement
Next to a cactus
Between thorns
Under branches
Between grass
But they always look beautiful!

and here’s a song for them

  1. Flowers have the most giving nature for they bestow their beauty on all. They ask for so little in return for the joy they bring to our lives. Beauty, joy, resilience – I am filled with gratitude. A wonderful post to begin my day. Hugs!!!

    • Ah, so beautifully said… and these particular ones ask for nothing at all from us. They simply grow. 😉 I’m so happy you enjoyed their beauty. Have a lovely Friday… weekend is here (my, how time flies!) Many hugs back and xoxoxo

  2. these are grape hyacinths – possibly the Armenian variety Muscari colchicum or
    Muscari cyaneo-violaceum – nothing to do with bluebonnet lupins .A rose by any other name would smell as sweet and even without a name these lovely flowers bring tinges of blue to a dominant yellow spring. Thanks for sharing Marina – mine are in tight bud still.

  3. Has anyone identified these yet? My absolute favorite is the photo looking down directly at these little new flowers through the old, previous seasonal remnants 🙂

Happy to hear your thoughts
