Colour from the Season - Muscari blue

These little Muscari (Grape Hyacinths) will soon be carpeting the garden - they have an incredible perfume. Apparently not all are blue - there are lots of varieties, some are yellow and smell of bananas(?) They feel quite 1950's in their style and perfume and I really love them. Drawing them today I realised how the leaves have so much movement, something that I might have otherwise missed...
