I was checking up on my bees (from outside the hives, still have not opened anything other then under supering) when I found this little gem, she moved in all by herself from who knows where, the funny thing is I was planning to plant them this fall, maybe she heard about this and decided to take up residence? This image is of Siberian Squill, growing under our cedars among the pine cones. They naturalize from seed, but this one travelled some distance since we don't have any in the yard other then this one. It is a gorgeous bulbous perennial plant (like tulips) that flowers in early spring and produces blue pollen, then dies back by the time the lawn needs to be mowed, this one is late most S. Squill is done by now.
