The spring squill flowers in dense blue waves along the clifftops to the north of me - at least it used to until the modern flood of coastal nature lovers trampled it into oblivion. I knew a population where white and pink forms lay sprinkled through the carpets like embroidered stars in a night blue sky. All gone now - the site has become a National Trust car park.
I grow the blue one - I got it from Simon Bond at Thuya Alpines and I adore it beyond words, it flowers every year and makes me so sad.
