Alpine squill - Scilla bifolia

Thank you Gergana :)
I think it must be Scilla Amoena. Bifolia have the stamen up and Amoena having them down. I should have studied that before I uploaded the picture. Thanks anyway for your effort Gergana :)

Should be, Anker. I am not so familiar with the taxonomy of Liliaceae. But I like hyacinths a lot. Some years ago I brought to my mother's garden yellow ones, which are rare here. :)
Great photo! :***)

Yellow Scilla sounds interesting. I have never seen them in Denmark. The most common one in Denmark is Scilla Sibirica, and it looks a lot like the one on the picture so........I think I must change the name again :D I hope your mother like the yellow ones :)
