Oh yes, more flowers

What are these called in English? Or in Danish for that matter.. their name has completely slipped out of my mind like the thief in the night...

  2. I have no idea. In Dutch we call them blauwe druifjes, little blue grapes.

  3. Dear Carina,
    I have just discovered your blog. I'm here for the first time and I'm glad that I can help you.
    I like very much this flower. Its name is Muscari-Grape Hyacinths.
    Look here for more details:

    I hope my comment was useful to you!
    Have a beautiful day!

  4. Grape hyacinths. Although I've always called them Spanish bluebells too, but searching for that on google images brings up lots of bog standard looking bluebells.
    They're lovely whatever they are. As are the daisies. I wish we had daisies in our garden rather than lots of dandelions.

  7. Hej!
    På svenska heter de pärlhyacinter - kanske något liknande på danska?
