    Beautiful flowers! Love your photography!

  16. I thought beautiful blue stars also as well as a sky filled with bursting star fireworks! 😊

  17. So pretty! What are they?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Laurie. They are Chionodoxa, or Glory-of-the-Snow. They have self sowed all around my yard and are putting on a lovely show these days.

  18. I love these. I bought some to plant in the garden, but worry that I’ll be digging them up all the time. I’ve see them growing at the bases of ornamental trees. Where do you grow yours?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Years ago, I started with a section of lawn where I put early spring bulbs and allowed to grow until the foliage faded before cutting. Over the years (ants?) have spread the seeds all over, I now have clumps showing up under shrubs, in garden beds, even the front lawn far from the originals. It’s a wonder how they’ve got so far. Faeries perhaps?? 😉 But they delight me no end.

  19. Subtle, but what a beauty!

  20. Kris Peterson says:

    Beautiful! And yet further evidence of the differences between our climates. I hope you’ve enjoyed a pleasant weekend and that maybe that snow in your forecast passed you by.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Kris! It was hailing rain this afternoon, snow and rain expected overnight. My emerging perennials probably won’t like that. Fingers crossed that they come through okay. Such is weather in New England!

  21. Love the color and photo!🙂 I keep hoping to see more color while on my walks, but hopefully I’ll begin to see tulips soon. Already signs the rabbits and deer are enjoying my lilies as they emerge.🙂

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Susan! I noticed the other day that deer have been munching on my emerging day lilies and phlox– one plant scraped down to the soil. Sigh. 😦

  22. Jane Lurie says:

    These are gorgeous. Terrific photo, Eliza. 😄

  23. Jewels says:

    Bright beautiful stars, just delightful, Eliza!

  24. Lovely. We have these as our early plants too although neither of us has any idea how they got here. 🙂

  25. Such a lovely peaceful blue!

  26. Adele Brand says:

    They are very pretty. I just checked to see where they originated and looks like it’s the eastern Mediterranean. I’ll look for them there if I ever head that way, assuming travel ever starts again!

  27. susurrus says:

    How wonderful to have ants and faeries spreading these for you!

  28. Maria says:

    Nice depth-of-field and colors!

  29. naturebackin says:

    They are so delicate in shape and colour, and how nice that they spread only aided by other tiny beings – ants and faeries!

  30. Gracefully Global travels says:

    Perfect light!
