These are the tulips that were stomped on by the snow six days ago when they were still buds. Nature’s resilience can be amazing!

Tulips

These are mystery flowers. Each spring since we moved back here 15 years ago, these two little blue flowers bloom in the same spot, but only the two, the only ones I’ve ever seen anywhere. I have no idea what they are, although in some ways they look similar to Siberian squill, which is not native to Montana. They are not in a flower bed or a place where to my knowledge any flowers were ever planted, indeed it’s a place that would normally get foot traffic (a lawn area near the house). They are a little bit smaller than the spring yellowbells.

Siberian squill?
