In a world of spring pastel blossoms and the bright red/orange/yellow of many tulips this tiny bright blue flower can be overlook, especially when they are in the shade. The sun hit it just so on our mornign walk to make if catch my eye. I’m not sure what it is.
Clearly I have a fixation on blue and purple flowers…Maybe an intervention is warranted?
