Purple-ish? Blue-ish? A Cool Haze...




"A Cool Haze"


Not much to say here except, this is my front yard and my Better Half wants to rip these little babies out because they aren't very pretty once they are done blooming.  I'm fighting him on it.  Granted, he has a point BUT...both him and I are past our full blooms too.
Especially....him :)  Haha, sometimes I just can't resist.  I love you JUST the way you are Better Half.  Looks like I'll be cooking a good dinner tonight.

  3. So funny, Kathy! Can't you just trim them down?

  4. Pretty. My husband is like that too, as soon as the flowers are gone the plant is on his list. :-) Hope you can find someplace to put them!

  5. Love the blue color. We call them grape hyacinths and tell the Better Half, in due time he can mow over them, but rip them out??? Never!

  6. We have these flowers in our garden, unfortunately most of them died because of the cold winter. Good picture.

  7. No, no. Don't rip them out. They are lovely and something to look forward to each spring.

  8. I like to think of these as blue. I love them. I have them in pots, so when they are finished blooming I can fill in with other things, makes the after bloom not so noticeable. Yes, we need to embrace this aging, and not being in bloom. Tee hee.

  11. LOL! When I lived up north I used to sprinkle, okay throw crocus bulbs and plant them where they landed, I miss doing that! You have to fight him on this one, because some of these simple pleasures are the free ones.

  12. They are too beautiful to rip out. I love how they just pop up randomly every year. Tell him he has been overruled by the blogging world!

  13. So so pretty! The photo is stunning. Well, I know what he means too, but I would fight him too! Good Luck! and have a fabulous week.

  19. I have these too but your's looks like a carpet of coolness! You know what's great about these beauties? You don't have to do anything....and they always come back!

  20. Oh WOW! Those are some pretty PURPLE flowers!! I would fight the "Better Half" too on taking them down. So what if they're only gorgeous for a little while. It's hard to keep up appearances sometimes, let alone always. LOL... ;)

  21. So pretty! Love the purple-ish, blue-ish colors! I hope the dinner works! :)

  22. Are they Muscari? I love them, they're so pretty, and how are they meant to soak up enough light etc to look as beautiful next year if your husband cuts them off in their prime? Just say no!

  23. leave them be!!
    tell him I said so :)
    beautiful beautiful photo

  24. Yes, especially him! I remember my grandmothers delight in saying "the crocus are up"...after a long winter the color is needed. These early bloomers are necessary for good mental health. Tell "him" to get over it....plant a few colorful annuals in front of the green that remains later in the season.

  25. These are beautiful! Love the vivid color. I'd ask the better half how HE would like to be "ripped out" by the roots . . . lol. Flowers have feelings too. ;)

  26. Such beautiful color! What did you fix for dinner? :)

  27. Keep fighting! I'll stick up for you, we'll show him who's boss!....yep, i'm right there with you...way over here from across the seas... although with the time difference I'll probably be sound asleep when you're having the negotiations.....and I'm not that skilled in confrontation....maybe the food idea is the better way to go.

  28. Don't you dare let him take those out -- we just mow over ours when they are done, but I'm sure our yard is not as nice as yours. Lol. Beautiful dof and color, Kathy!

  29. They are so cheery...so I vote to keep them!

  30. That's a tough one, because they are messy when they are finished their blooming. I never tore them out at our first house, and I never planted them at the 2nd for just that reason! :)
