The sky a few minutes ago, looks like it will be a lovely Saturday for gardening.

We had blue skies here today too, although I don't have as many blue flowers as you do ...not yet, anyway. I guess you're a month ahead of us. Let's hope for another sunny day tomorrow.

The white star-shaped flower with blue shading is a chionodoxa. Here in Maine we call them Glory-of-the-snow. I've seen masses of them naturalized on a New England hillside -- beautiful!
