What is this flower?

This pretty little white star shaped flower blooms all about the farm yard each Spring and I have no idea what it's called.  I tried to Google "white star shaped flower" and got nowhere fast. :-)  Do you know what it is?  Time to get a flower book, I guess!  (Thanks to Nancy, who told me it's a "Star of Bethlehem"!)
These below I do know - Forget-Me-Nots - they sure are a pretty flower.  
I'm a bit worried about my lilacs... they are just opening, not fully open, and the rain has come back.  I'm worried sick that all the blooms will turn brown from the rain, it's happened before, but usually after I get plenty of fragrant bouquets for the house.  I might go out in the rain and cut some and hope that they open in the warm dry house.  
On Friday I dropped hubby off at our youngest son's house so our son could take their dog to the veterinarian to get some shots.  Our daughter-in-law flew to Las Vegas as the guest of her sister for 3 days so our son is single-handedly taking care of 2 active boys.  After I dropped hubby off I headed to the pool for my hour of swimming.  Then back to our son's house to join the "guys".  We then took the boys to a park to play and I got these 2 cute photos of the boys on these rocking toys.  Above is the 2 year old and below is the 3 year old.  Then off to Chinese dinner for all of us.
We're just having a lazy Sunday today, reading blogs, posting a blog (grin) and playing Scrabble on Facebook.  Yesterday was much busier - I helped with a craft jury at Rooster Rock, came home and picked up hubby and we went to an Art Show at the Corbett School where we bought 3 hardy fuchsia's and a couple of craft items.  Then we met our son and grandsons for dinner and the 2 year old ate and ate and ate!

I hope you had a restful or exciting weekend, whichever you needed.  Thanks for coming to visit and do leave a comment if you'd like - I just changed the settings to make it easier for people to make comments that don't have a blog account.  So, if you've tried before and it didn't work, please try again.

  1. Hooray, I am the first to post a comment. As you can see I am spending time reading blogs, too. Have no idea what flower that is, but is very beautiful, as are your grandbabies. Glad you are having some nice family time.
    Have a great week,

  2. Hi Teresa ... Your garden must look gorgeous - those little forget me nots are so sweet, as of course are your beautiful little grandsons. Their rocking toys must be such fun for them - we only have that kind of thing in our public parks (not at home). Have a great day.

  3. Hi Teresa,

    Looks like the flower you have is "Star of Bethlehem" and here is a link to more info on it.


  4. Hi Teresa,

    Thank you for sharing.

  5. Hello Teresa lovely flowers and your grandchildren are beautiful. I am just enjoying a short break with a cuppa befor doing a few chores and then I hope to work on the invitations to our Ruby Weddin celebrations- I am making the cards. Later hope to carry on with knitting some cupcakes- a decoration for a cupcake stall my DIL and I are doing in June. Anne x

  7. Sounds like a great weekend. I am so jealous..sunshine and a craft show all in one weekend. Have an awesome week.

  8. Those Forget-Me-Nots are so pretty. I have no idea what the white ones are. I Googled a few things and saw some pictures that looked the same, but none of them had names listed.

    There's that cute curly-headed boy again. Precious.

  9. The flowers are beautiful, and so are your grandsons!

  10. I don't care what kind they are. I just want some. Especially, those lovely blue ones. You know my garden is kind of helter-skelter anyways. Sort of like I pick my yarn.

    Glad you find some Teresa time over the week.

    Toodles for now, my garden is calling me back out,

  11. Thank you so much for visiting me the other day..your blog is lovely. Oh how I adore forget-me-nots....I must plant some this year...little blue flowers of JOY!

    Have a great new week. xo

  12. The white flower almost looks like a white daffodil doesn't it? It's pretty. xoxox

  13. Hello Teresa. I think that flower might be star of bethlehem, but I'm not 100% sure. I used to have one growing in my lawn!

    That Native American beaded work is truly amazing.

    Thanks so much for your lovely comments on my blog.


I absolutely love comments and thank you so much for taking time to leave me a note. :-)
