I found these gorgeous little blue flowers sprouting near the place where I first spotted the winter aconite weeks ago. It’s a wonderful, cheery little flower growing beneath many trees who have yet to push forth their leaves. Notice how happy they are emerging from the blanket of the trees' leaves from seasons past.
While chatting with my landlady yesterday, I learned that these little flowers were originally brought direct from England by her mother many years ago. She even offered to have me come and collect some to plant around my cottage! Guess whom I have a date with this morning? I'll be sure to ask her to remind me of their name, so I can share it with you!
