    What a lovely flower; a beautiful shade of blue.

    Chigiy, I loved discovering it in the grass.

    Ruth, thank you — I definitely agree. It was such a little treat to stumble across!

    What a beautifully-coloured flower … it looks as if it is Narrowleaf Blue-eyed Grass (Sisyrinchium angustifolium).

    Kate, thanks for the plant name on this one — I figured it had something to do with the grass, since that’s where it cropped up, but wasn’t sure.
