After Taking it to the Ground...

Scilla under the privet hedge
Each year I tell myself I will move these.  Each year I do not.  They are perfectly beautiful where they are and protected from being disturbed, planted as they are within the drip line of the hedge.  As a spring ephemeral it is also a bulb which probably likes it a bit dry through the summer.

This odd little scilla was more teal than blue.
I intend to check to make sure being hidden beneath
leaves had nothing to do with its strange coloration.
Crocuses always say spring, don't they?
After being cut to the ground and having much of it removed altogether,
my dappled willow is poised to make a return display.  Hiding behind it a tray of Concord grape starts for my brother.
