Pink flowers

These flowers show up in the spring in a patch of grass out by the pond. To me, they look like hyacinths that have escaped from somebody's garden, but I don't really know what they are.

Pretty in pink.

The weather is nice and we're planning a couple of outdoor work days this week. On the list are tilling the vegetable garden plots, cutting the grass, and power-washing the deck. Spring!

UPDATE: I noticed during my morning walk with Callie that, sadly, somebody (presumably an Easter holiday maker, not someone who lives here) picked these on Sunday or Monday.


  1. So glad you got a photo before they were plucked!

  2. I so hate when people pick flowers like that and deprive everyone else. (I had two aunts, very well-bred, snobbish women, who used to actually step into people's gardens and snip off flowers they especially liked.)

  3. I remember decades ago the first reply from the professionals on the long-running radio programme "Gardeners' Question Time" to the question "When's the best time to take cuttings?" was "When nobody's looking". Not the same thing, though, as depriving everyone else from seeing the flowers (not mention harming a plant's capacity to reproduce?) - and what's worse is the possibility that the plucked flowers might not have lasted all that long anyway.


Tell me what you think!
