the little blue ones do look like they could be scillia... right kind of leaves, but the flowers seem much bigger than mine.

our weather forecast is for -20C next week and more snow... if i wasn't so busy i'd be depressed.

Yes Claire, that looks like Scilla Sibirica to me. It matches the pic in my plant encyclopedia.
Love your pretty tulips and am seriously envious!!
