FIRST FLOWERS OF THE YEAR










I was driving around and saw these little blue flowers coming out.  My Mom use to call them Blessed Mother's flowers and say that she was telling us Spring is coming.  I enjoy seeing them every year.  Do you have any flowers coming out that you would like to share with us????

Marilyn.....What a wonderful name for them!! I have had them them in my yard for years too, and always wondered what they were called - Heretofore, they will be Blessed Mother's flowers at our home! They always do seem to be the announcement for spring and the sunny days ahead. Thank you!

Hi Marilyn! We have these flowers up in our garden here in Toronto. It is like a sea of blue. I think they are named Scilia, but I like your mom's name for them more.

Good Morning Folks,
Thank you for the compliments on the flowers. I loved what my Mom use to call them, too. Had some running around I had to do yesterday. Was going to hit the road today, but one of the tires on the car doesn't look so good. Going to take it to dealer when they open.
