Leaves of (Blue-eyed) Grass

Soft stars of sapphire

Small yet striking sapphire-to-amethyst flowers on the ends of a few blades of blue-eyed grass (some member of the genus Sisyrinchium).

These woodland gems were poking up through some of the brighter green ground cover just off a path that cuts between the park and a large field by the township library.
