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...

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

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!

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.

Hi, they are called grape hyacinths in the UK! Beautiful to see the blue arriving at last!

Carina said...

Thank you all! I think I need to email the photo to my mum "what are these called?!" ;-)

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

Carina said...

Ja! Jeg tror du har ret - perlehyacinter! :-) Tak!

I only found out that they're grape hyacinths the other day when someone commented on the photo of some on my blog! They're lovely aren't they?

Molly said...

Yes - grape hyacinths. They always look so beautiful paired with daffodils.

My Mother had a whole field of them in our backyard! Every time I see them it brings so many wonderful memories back! Thanks for the beautiful memory invoking!
