Spring Days

Our days are starting with hard frosts which give some lovely images like these camellia leaves rimmed with white. Later in the day it warms up enough for the little grass orchids to appear. They are quite tiny being only about 10mm. across. I was told they were grass orchids but they do not have the usual shape of an orchard so I do wonder about the name.

  1. We have a native plant here on the west coast of Canada called sisyrinchium or blue eyed grass.
    Your plant looks very similar.
