Chionodoxa forbesii 'Pink Giant'
This bunch of plants had only one flower and several buds showing this past Sunday. Three fairly mild days later there's a bouquet.
The Chionodoxa, "Glory of Snow", is related to Scilla and Hyacinths. I think they compare favorably with Scilla. The name Chinodoxa is a scientific name which translates to "glory of snow". They are early bloomers and often appear through the snow. We had a very mild winter with very little snow so these have come up in rain and dew. They are plants of Asia Minor, from the mountains of Cyprus, Crete and southern Turkey. C. forbesii comes from southwest Turkey.
Squirrel update. I know, I know, you're all tired of hearing about the trapping but it's almost at its conclusion. Caught two more gray squirrels today #10 and #11. So that leaves only one black colored one. Unfortunately I saw another gray squirrel today so my count must have not been accurate or one caught previously made its way home or this is a new squirrel from the fringes of the neighborhood. So I have two more to catch. Jenn of the Garden Djinn mentioned that if I didn't take the squirrels more than a mile away they could find their way home. I measured the distance and it's about 1/2 mile away. I really hope I don't have to keep doing this all summer.
