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
Can you blame me?
They will grow anywhere!
Next to a pavement
Next to a cactus
But they always look beautiful!
and here’s a song for them
Pretty Flowers Were Made for Blooming
from Blues Dream 
Happy Thursday everyone!

Beautiful colours ! Love purple!
Oh I agree with you and …me too!!
Grape post! Reminds me of a tender love ballad that I think MK-O should record– it’s just their style… 😊 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=besDdDuKxdU
A ha ha….yes, we must!!!!!!!
Wait, don’t go: your ambrosia!🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨
Nice. Happy Friday, MK.
Thank you, my friend – to you too! [as much as possible these days! 😉 ]
Ah, thank you, my friend! 🙂
Hearty souls to grow in those locations … and a brilliant splash for the season. 🙂
Well said, my friend. They are just that! Yamas!!!!!! 🍷
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
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.
Oh, wow!!! I am eternally grateful for such a beautiful description and for giving them a name! Won’t be long till you get to enjoy their full bloom! Many hugs your way! 🤗😘
These have to be the same family as our bluebonnets( https://www.wildflower.org/learn/how-to/grow-bluebonnets).
The purple is so intense and beautiful! Certainly a royal plant – lovely hide and seek player. (The first and second pictures are my best of the bouquet today)
They do look like they belong to this family although these are really tiny. That purple is so rich and intense, I can’t get my eyes off them! Thank you so much for the information and your presence here! Have a great Thursday my friend!
Flowers are a bright spot on the road and the mind. Thanks for recognizing that 🙂
They are, aren’t they?! 🙏😉😊
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 🙂
I can see why… they also caught my attention and how determined they are to bloom! Phil on his comment above says they belong to a bluebonnet family… I’ll go check it out. They are really tiny. 😘🤗
Laura has identified them as grape hyacinths! 😉
Perfect for your region, and they look luscious enough to eat!
They do, although i doubt it would be a good idea! 😉
These are so gorgeous and breath of fresh air, thank you Marina. xoxoxoxoxxoxoxo
Thank you, my sweet friend… they are indeed a breath of joy whenever I see them! ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
