Muscari Gone Wild

Life in Christian County, Kentucky...



Grape hyacinth

I won't mention the setting of this photo because every time I use the c-word on the blog, it seems that the Google ads take a very melancholy turn for a week or so! I'll just say that it's unusual to see clump after clump of muscari (grape hyacinth) in a place like this. Usually in these old sites, it's all daffodils.

This photo was taken along Lake Tandy Road, a few miles northeast of Hopkinsville, and it dates back to the 1880's or so, with Jenkins being a prominent name.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
