A Striped Squill to be precise.
As I was tidying up the garden, I came across this sweet little flower peering out of a pot under the hedge. This is Puschkinia scilliodes, named after the Russian botanist, Apollo Mussin-Pushkin. Why couldn't they have called it Apollo ? So much easier to spell.
And these are Crocus tomasinianus, now flowering in large clumps around the lawn. The squirrels didn't get them after all.
And then I came across a hybrid Crocus. As I was taking its photograph, the camera said 'blink detected.' Have you ever seen a crocus blink ? Neither have I, but the camera never lies, does it ?
And finally, I came across a white Viola Miracle flowering in a basket. These are a new strain of violet based on the old fashioned, sweetly scented varieties.
Needless to say, I didn't get much tidying up done, but there's always tomorrow.
