Tiny blue flower ID'd by Oron as Bellevalia hyacinthoides
« on: February 08, 2016, 05:38:18 PM »
We saw this tiny flower yesterday on a rocky headland.
It looked a bit like autumn squill to me but it is now nearly spring.
Has anyone any ideas?
The pink tinge on the closer photo is probably a reflection from my bright pink anorak

Most of my plants are succulents which need little care
