It is pretty! Wouldn't mind having some on the bare parts of my yard. But it probably wouldn't grow as well in my climate.

I'd rather have that than lawn any day. Lovely, dreamlike photos.

they are so lovely in the lawn and by the time the grass grows long enough to mow the flowers will be done anyway. Perfect.

I used to do Todays Flowers I think I will start again next week. MB

These are so beautiful and now I'll have to try to find them in blue. I have white ones which are amongst my first spring blooms each year but don't have any blue ones.

Very nice! Reminds me of the bluebells in Texas. Here we have a pinkish ground flower that lasts only a few weeks but is also very pretty!
