    So blue-tiful!

  31. Maria says:

    This incredible, are these growing wild? Amazing, I always knew these liked colder weather.

  32. Eliza Waters says:

    While these do need a cold period, they are not wild, but grown in pots at our local bulb show. I hope to plant similar ones in my yard this fall. I love the colors!

  33. Jen says:

    Simply beautiful. I think purple is my favorite color in the garden ๐Ÿ™‚

    So beautiful to see the shades of spring in all its glory with this shot, Eliza. Wonderful.

  35. Cristina says:

    Love the colors. Beautiful!

  36. Beautifully captured! I have a dozen or so water hyacinths in my pond. Their flowers are lovely, but not quite as intense as your plants.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, C.S. Water hyacinths are nice to have in a pond, do they overwinter or do you have to bring them inside?

      • Yes, overwinter in a bucket in my garage, but they usually die from too little light. I read in one of my pond books to over winter them in sand. Will try that next fall.
