Blossoms Underfoot

The home we lived in for the the past 20 years featured a blossoming front lawn.

It didn’t start out that way. The first Spring after we moved in, these small purple blossoms appeared in the flower bed in front of the house. I (incorrectly it turns out) assumed they were crocuses. Each Spring more and more blooms popped up until the entire front lawn looked like a purple carpet.

It was such a stunning sight, the local paper asked if they could send a photographer over to capture our lawn. They did and the paper’s gardening experts identified the flowers as squill.

I wonder if those flowers have appeared yet, and what the new home owners think of them. I hope they’re enjoying them.

Walking the dog here in Spokane last week, I spotted this carpet of white flowers. Different from the purple blossoms on our Missoula lawn, but they reminded me of our old home.

    Aww, I’d miss the walkway of flowers if they looked like that.
