    Jerry, congratulations on a fantastic photo! Also, thank you for reminding me of some of the lovely and beloved plants we grew when we lived in upstate NY. We miss them, but also enjoy seeing them in others' gardens.

    All three species of 'bells', English, Spanish and the hybridized version, can be found in three colors, blue, pink and white. My English bells,Hyacinthoides non-scripta, (Thank you Sjoerd for the great ID info) live together and the colors mix. Blue is the least common followed by white and pink. With no Spanish or hybrid bells in sight they have remained true for about 20 years. This year I think I will harvest seeds as I have many seed pods.

    Beautiful pic. They remind me of Lily of the Valley which is pretty invasive. Those are lovely.
