Leucojum aestivum
Some flowers demand close observation. So are the tiny flowers of Leucojum aestivum. Each year I know when winter goes into spring by the buds and blooms of this little bulb plant. You can't really see the inside of the bloom, unless you get on your hands and knees and turn the little trumpet heads over. The outer flower, the part most people are familiar with, is worthy enough of praise. The white is pure and the little green specks are true green. A very nice combination! If you stumble upon a bed of Leucojum, consider stopping and giving them the attention they deserve.
