Just waiting

Standing here waiting for hubby to finish doing last
minute things before we head home.
Yup it’s late again
but I’m really not that tired.
The days have been flying by and I didn’t even realize today was Friday.
I guess that might be a good sign….if I hated being here
then time would drag.
I just wanted to share one of my favorite spring bulbs that
you may not know about.
Puschkinia libantica ‘Blue’
or also known as Striped Squill.

Ain’t it purdy??

Have a great weekend wherever you are.

You are one hard working girl, aren't you, Carole? :) It's a good thing that you love what you do! The blue of that Striped Squill is just amazing! I know that true blue flowers are hard to come by - and this one is just amazing! Now....go to bed!! :) I'll be staying up late and drooling all over my new JDA mag! Thanks, sweetie!

I didn't know about this bulb Carole.It is so pretty. I wonder if it is hardy in my zone 4? I will look it up.
I loved the CS issue of Z's awesome home. At first when I read your post I thought...I wonder if I could get in trouble for showing the pages of the RH with 'my' own photos. I guess we will wait and see :)
I hope you enjoy the first day of April.
Hugs from here...

So beautiful Carol ~ Happy Sunday!

'Purdy' flower and 'purdy' photograhs Carole. I don't recall seeing that bulb over here but, that doesn't mean that we don't have it !! We have clear blue skies here on this first day of April. You must be SO busy but, much better to be busy than standing around I think.
Hope all's well with you. XXXX

Oh my goodness Carole - the beauty in these porcelain blue bulbs is stunning!
I have not seen them here where I live!
Your photography is a credit to you in capturing their beauty - the only thing we can't experience is their fragrance!
Hugs across the miles,

OMG!! I love the wonderful blue Striped Squill flowers. I have to have it!! Tell me what time of year do you plant the bulb and if you have plenty to go around. Otherwise I may have to have you save it for me.
