I took several photographs of A Great Sight in Rockridge to capture the soothing front garden, the gravel, stone spheres, and variety of emergent bulbs. But when I got home, I found that some of the pictures from my digital camera were corrupted.

Although the photographs didn’t turn out, I’m not left without a souvenir from today’s Muscari sighting. When I arrived at Trader Joe’s I was thrilled to find some in a little twin-tin, already forced, blooming and ready to go.
