Not a good way to start the season.

My first wildflower of the season and I cannot find it in my guide! This is not a good way to start the season! This seems to like the damp forest floors. It grows about 2 to 3 inches tall.

This is serendipitous! Several of us were having the exact same conundrum discussion at World's End yesterday, where I'm told, they bloom and naturalize profusely. Finding out these blue spring beauties' name is my project du jour! As always, thank you so much for sharing your extraordinary photography and commentary! You have a terrific eye and a big heart!

Thanks Mina.

Let me know what you find out, Annie.

And as always, thanks for stopping by.

It's a gorgous flower. Lovely shade of blue. I hope you find out what it is Steve!

Hi Steve. I believe it's Chionodoxa. The blossoms are such a lovely shade of blue.

Lovely little thing, whatever it is.

Steve Borichevsky said...

Thanks CameraGirl, I'll look into it tonight.

Hi Steve, thank you so much for joining in with Today's Flowers. Really enjoyed these photos and am glad this pretty flower was identified. I didn't know what it was either until now. Have a great week!

Scilla Siberica is the thinking of our World's End gang. It's often confused with Chionodoxa. In Minnesota, it used to be sold as an ornamental, but now it's considered an invasive. Pretty, nonetheless!

Ha! It first popped up in the woods by a vernal spring, I figured it was a wild flower. Now it is popping up all over the place. It's a flower gone wild! Thanks for the World's End Gang for helping me figure this one out.

I was going to say scilla, but you have already heard that!! They do not stay too long, and they are such a beautiful blue that I do not care if they are invasive. Of course, mine have not invaded very far...
