The link goes to the photobucket page before log in.

I know what lupines look like, so I can help with that if you can get the photo up.

I 100% agree with AppyLover2.


Here's a Lupine. They are much much bigger than hyacinths, but I can see why you'd think one was the other. There are similarities I never noticed before you mentioned it!

Thank y'all so much for your help! For posting my picture, posting the beautiful picture of lupines, and for the excellent advice! That's what they are; grape hyacinth!
It means so much to me to have such wonderful forum friends to help me.

God bless,

Joan

I can't see them very well it's a little photo but if the photo was a close up they also might be wild sweetpeas (not sure if that's the technical name.. i think they have a different name..my horses love to eat them). they grow on a vine like plant near the ground nestled in the grass.

I"ve never seen a blue bonnet in real life but my mom said they look like small lupines.... perhaps those are it too?

Thanks Boinky,

I made a mistake by resizing the photo and things got much smaller. I've got to do better. They were so pretty and I just had to have some. Grape hyacinths are what they are. I knew folks on the forum would know if the picture turned out okay. So, we found out where some were locally here and planted a few. Flowers just make a place happy.


God bless,

Joan

They don't look like hyacinths to me. I have seen them around here too and if I knew the name I would get some. They are sooo pretty. Anyone else have an idea???
