The Grape Hyacinth

A few years ago, my Mom planted a dozen or so Grape Hyacinth bulbs near the Sweet Gum trees. The bulbs came up well but we then discovered that they are a delicacy to the deer. We soon gave up on the project. The trees slowly grew and Grape Hyacinth became less obvious to the hungry deer.

With no attention or support on our part, the Grape Hyacinth have been busy growing and multiplying. We now have a lovely little patch tucked between the trees. A cheery pop of purple in a sea of green. Just don't tell the deer!
