Scilla forbesii – A bit late for this one really, as the flowering period is now over. But one of the early spring flowering bulbs. Double-click to enlarge image.

  1. Another new one for me, and well-named, too. I see that there are some 50-80 varieties in the subfamily Scilloideae, including bluebells and squill, and they appear to be related to asparagus, too. How fascinating!

  2. A treat to see at ANY time, your photo really shows how glorious they are. They’re exquisite, the blue-and-white together in this lovely light are vibrant!
