Muscari Azureum

By chase
Or Grape Hyacinth as they are commonly known.
Taken from my garden, I dug them up as I am planning to take some to my new house

The densely packed racemes take on a conical shape and each floret opens like a small bell, giving a loose, flouncy look to the inflorescence.
Plants bloom in early spring and have a light, grapey scent.

Taken against my light box with a drop of artistic licence on the bg, it looked a bit stark just white Wink I used daylight to put extra light on the front of the flowers.

Thanks for calling in.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Fab. I love it. Mine are just beginning to show but a way off being photoworthy.
I found a teeny tiny ladybird in my bedroon thismorning and thought about adding it to a shot but one of my cats ate it. OopsTongueSadGrin

I like the way you have used the curve of both the muscari and the leaf to frame and embrace the composition.

It's the grace notes (like the ladybird) that lift this sort of shot above the 'competent' and into the 'wow!' category...

Good choice to make the bg more pastel, it makes the image far more pleasant to view and complements the flowers so well.
