  1. Thanks for this. I was looking at some squill this afternoon and trying to remember what it was.

    • Ah yes, and one of the very few I can credit to an ecology degree! According to my flower book it’s part of the lily family.

      • i didn’t know that. But (for whatever it’s worth) I’ve seen it in the fall as well, although my flower book only mentions spring squill.

      • I’ve just looked it up! Autumn squill is a separate species but quite similar except, obviously, grows in the autumn. Like the spring version it’s native to Cornwall and the coast of Devon and, oddly enough, a colony in Hampton Court Park so there you go 🙂

  2. Lovely – thank you, Open the Curtains!

  3. Absolutely beautiful!

  4. There is something immensely calming and wonderful about the large swathes of Bluebells which appear at this time of year.
