A number of our readers in North America have been hit with spring snow this past week. Jenny Beaver captured this image of grape hyacinths poking out of the snow on April 15.

Grape hyacinths, flowers belonging to the Muscari genus, are also sometimes called blue bells or baby’s breath—although these names are all commonly applied to other plants as well.
