Nature's Calendar -Grap Hyacinths among the stinging nettles

I didn't think that there were any more places for me to discover walking down the back lane to Asda. But I was wrong. I found what appears to be a garden, obviously attended by the people living nearby, in one corner there appears to be a wild part overgrown with nettles, but in amongst them are beautiful deep blue grape hyacinths. the nettles will be a great attraction for butterflies later so I must remember to look later in the year.

I love grape hyacinths but sometimes can look too formal. Lovely photo :0)

Lovely colour contrast - they're about the only things that grow in my rockery - but the leaves are more impressive than the flowers :(

Lovely photo - I love these two colours together.

I love Grape Hyacinths, they always add such a lovely colour to the gardens in the Spring, a great photo Mary.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
