FutureStarrA Little Blue Flowers in Grass
I wish I had an answer to that, but I don’t. If there’s anything I can gather from my own experience, it’s that people follow their hearts, do what they believe in, and try to live authentically.the plant has a sprawling habit as it sends out hairy, maroon runners in all directions. The broad, spade-shaped leaves along the runners are scalloped on the edges and lie opposite one another. Where the runners terminate, the leaves become less broad and they’re more tightly packed together. Flowers appear singly in the leaf axils. Photos taken 3 May 2011.The tiny white flowers seem to be a form of speedwell also, with opposite leaves that are jagged or notched. The leaves are similar to those of the tiny blue flower, except drawn out or stretched into thinner, oval shapes. The white flowers have fours petals and occur at the leaf nodes, not terminally. Overall, the tiny white flower plant is taller and has more vertically rising stems than the tiny blue flower plant.
" Because the stones are larger and heavier, they will stay put when you use a leaf blower to clean the area. Then, I would suggest you find a small, round table and two or three matching chairs to make this space an outdoor entertainment area. As an alternative, you might place a birdhouse and bird feeder suspended on a shepherd's crook pole, a metal pedestal bird bath, and a park bench in this area. If you can add a short trellis to hide the gas meter, it would improve the overall appearance, but check with your local authorities to see if the code allows a trellis. Your home has beautiful windows and doors, and I love the contrast of black and white. You asked about landscape, but I wonder if you have considered painting the front door and the treads of the steps the same beige as the stone, leaving the risers or backs of the steps white. Everything looks beautiful in black and white, but some people do like a harmonizing third color on the door and treads.Each Siberian squill bulb bears only two to four narrow leaves and one or two arched flower stems about 6 inches (15 cm) tall, each with two to five downward-facing, star-shaped violet-blue flowers. The cultivar ‘Spring Beauty’ (the most commonly available variety) differs only slightly from the species, with flowers of a more intense blue. Plus it can be slighter taller. The only other commonly available variety is S. siberica alba which has pure white flowers.
Based on the species name, angustifolium (which is Latin for "narrow"), you might guess that another difference is in the width of their respective leaves. But, in this case, angustifolium is something of a misnomer: There is not that much difference between the two in terms of leaf width. Another plant in this genus with a confusing name is white blue eyed grass (S. albidium), another native of eastern North America: It really does have white flowers (or, at best, pale blue flowers). (Sisyrinchium angustifolium) is an evergreen, clump-forming perennial wildflower. Its dainty star-shaped flowers and are born atop flat, grasslike stems. Tepals may be blue, purple or lavender and darken as they near the center of the flower, which is bright yellow. They have obvious venation, are tipped with sharp points, and arch back toward the stem as the flower opens. Leaves are long, linear and basal. Seeds develop in capsules that wrinkle and turn dark brown as they mature. The grasslike appearance of both stems and leaves give this plant its common name. However, it is in no way related to the grass family. (Source: www.flawildflowers.org)
