Springtime flowers

I see these flowers blooming briefly every year in early spring. There is one spot in particular where there is almost a carpet of them, a shady place beneath some tall trees. But this year I'm seeing them in the vineyard, out in the sunny spots under the vine trunks. I haven't tried to identify them yet, so I don't know anything about them.

Anybody recognize these? UPDATE: It's Star of Bethlehem, Ornithogalum umbellatum.

Last night was crystal clear, and this morning is cold, but brilliantly sunny. Time to bundle up and go out with Callie!


  1. Star of Bethlehem are the flowers!
    Lovely are they not!

  2. Walt,
    Aren't the first harbingers of spring wonderful? Lovely!

  3. tim, thanks! Found 'em.

    ron, absolutely!

  4. so long as they are not you-know-whats.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
