Eleven o'clock lady

Nap at noon in bloom

This cluster of Ornithogalum umbellatum waited for a warm and sunny day in early May to bloom.  A perennial bulb that can be invasive, this six petaled white spring flower is commonly known as "nap-at-noon", "eleven-o'clock lady", or "star of Bethlehem".

  1. I like how you captured the flowers in different stages of openness - some fully open and others starting to.
