These tiny scilla in today’s Flower a Day are ones that I look forward to seeing every Spring. They make a carpet of blue under the bare trees before the leaves are even out on the trees above them. They have spread so thick and far that it has made it really hard to walk to my clothes line or compost area without treading them underfoot. I know it seems silly but I can’t stand to step on them as, though they are such a strong blue colour, they are actually very small and fragile. Zoom in on the main flower and you can see the little trumpet shape inside those main petals. Enjoy your day, my friends, appreciating the little joys in our lives.
