Friday flowers

Today is wet and dreary. I don’t know about you, but I could use a pick-me-up.




I feel better already!

I’d wanted squill in my lawn for several years, but hadn’t gotten around to planting them. Last fall I finally did. They’re only a couple inches high. The tiny blue buds appear first, on leaves that are almost invisible among the grass.

They unfurl into lovely blue flowers, scattered around the lawn. They’ll be gone by the time I have to mow.



They will multiply over time, forming bunches of blue flowers.
