scilla siberica

in flora,my photography

Suddenly, my lawn is resplendent with vibrant sapphire stars. Little scilla in bloom. Bold despite its stature, confident in numbers, this azure army ushers forth. As yet the only color. Except for a rogue crocus or two.

It looks like I enhanced the photos. But I did not.

Then, this morning, Solvi picked a small bouquet, still adorned with last night’s rain. We didn’t have a vase small enough. So we used a left over Easter egg.

Actually Carol, it’s an import from Europe, and thrives in any deciduous woodland climate (US zones 2-8). Scilla siberica, “spring beauty” bulbs should be available at your local nursery in the fall or you can order them online here.
