Zoom in on grape hyacinths

I'm back into my front garden for my zoom out and in this week

a sea of blue from the grape hyacinths with some spots of yellow daffodil and green leaves showing the promise of tulips and bluebells still to come.  A real change from the white and yellow of snowdrops and crocus in February when I zoomed in on them.

anticipating a fascinating range of subjects from this weeks shares - I love how this one simple meme prompts such a range of topics - thank you.

I just love the little grape hyacinth and did some zooming on mine although I haven't posted them this week. I really like how your lovely meme gets 'my boys' looking for things for me!

I am so looking forward to seeing our hyacinths. But right now there is 2 inches of snow on the ground.

Lovely. We have them in our garden and I had no idea what they were called, so thanks!

I am so jealous of those of you who have Spring this far along! We had snow again last night - just a dusting really, looking a lot like the ground was sprinkled with powdered sugar, but snow nonetheless.

The blues are just lovely en masse like this. I haven't got any so it's lovely to see them up close too.

A favourite of mine - and aren't they just perfect for this? They look so good in a big group and so nice individually too

I just love seeing those first signs of spring, and hope some begin to appear here before long!

Such beautiful color! Our spring flowers are just starting to show up. And we're starting to put in the vegetable garden.

Our grape hyacinths are more leaf than fruit IYKWIM - there are signs of spring all around - just not in my neglected garden. I must plant some bulbs to cheer me up next year!

Love the zoom in shot.

Love those blues. Thanks for the peek at spring in your corner of the world. It will be a few weeks before we have anything.
