How beautiful!. I've never seen this plant before. The individual flowers look something like crocus flower. I love their lavender color.

Ah thank you. You know that is my favourite right ;-). Sigh, I missed them and it remind me of home very much.

Brilliant, I have always wandered what the flowers of water hyacinth looked like.For years we would buy these floating plants at the garden centre, they never flowered in our cool Summer.

Love this water plant! Unfortunately, it is unlawful to have these here. :( Every time I see a picture of them, I wish I could have them.

Mam w oczku wodnym hiacynty. Mam je dla liści, bo one u nas nie zakwitną. U Ciebie mam okazję zobaczyć śliczne kwiaty. Pozdrawiam ciepło

Lovely hyacinth!

About the tuna cakes.. I only added scallions, eggs, and breadcrumbs to it and some spice. And oh, a litle bit of yellow mustard can add a little flare to the taste.

Thanks Karin, Alistair, Laurax and Sandy and Giga, this plant will grow well in a warmer climate, the flower is so delicate and pretty and will last only a day.

Diana, its my favourite too and I love to photograph the pretty bloom.

Holley, I wonder why its illegal to grow them there? Because it can be be very invasive plant?

Thank you Malar, Beth, Steph, Joyce..a lot of people love it too like me!
