Spring at Last


I just returned from one of my favourite spring time walks past the Faculty of Law at U of Toronto. Every spring for as long as I can remember the lawns around the faculty become a carpet of blue when the Scilla bloom. The Scilla has become naturalized and has spread throughout the whole area along Queen's Park Circle. Gorgeous!

I thought for a moment they were bluebells but they're not like ours. Still a wonderful sight, a carpet of blue.

That looks great. Nice to see it instead of the previous snow storms.

Beautiful! I always wondered what those little blue flowers were, and now I know! I've seen them in borders before, but not as a whole lawn.

What a pleasant sight for spring eyes.

The scilla has really taken over there. It sure is a pretty lawn.
