A drawing of a dragon perched on a toadstool drawn to the scent of a grape hyacinth


After a long, snowy and cold winter, spring is cautiously taking over. While we’re still a ways from consistent t-shirt weather, spring flowers are popping up everywhere. My daughter brought in a lovely little clump of grape hyacinths and I imagined their delicate scent and lovely little bells would be equally alluring to the little dragons of Southern Michigan.

And here’s some links for real life examples of the mushrooms and the grape hyacinths in this drawing. Don’t you think it’s an interesting coincidence that their names are so similar?
