Squills out in all their beauty!

(An old post …)


Today the squills (Scilla sibirica) are fully out at home, after a few days struggling against a cold wind and grey skies. What a gorgeous blue of these flowers! I especially like the blue of the stamens.
This closeup photo was taken with my iPhone combined with a 10x Belomo Hastings triplet magnifier, and then slightly cropped. Not bad, eh?
(This is yet another entry concerning phenology, a long-time interest of mine.)
