Return of the Spring Squill

Yeah! The third time in 9 years. The Spring Squill at Coul Point was more prolific this year than in any of my previous visits - albeit that means there were only about two dozen stems. Not a patch on Colonsay. But, hey, let's not belittle this already diminutive flower, but rather sing its praises, competing as it was (botanically speaking) in a world of Sea Pinks and Marsh Marigolds. For me, anyway, it was definitely holding its own.
