Finally, a sunny, warm day! All day, too! We spent a couple of hours walking around the neighbourhood, looking for early flowers.
I'd never noticed this little beauty before:
|Squill or squill hybrid, possibly Scilla bifolia, nestling close to a sun-warmed log.|
It's a spring-flowering European import, related to the hyacinths. It grows from a bulb, but also self-seeds, is winter-hardy and tolerant of shade or sun. Here, it was growing beside the sidewalk, in a weedy patch. (You can see dandelion leaves in the background.) Tweet
