Blue-eyed Grass

This flower is very small...smaller than your pinkie finger nail.  Blue-eyed grass is not really a grass at all, it belongs in the Iris family.

This specimen was photographed at the Indiana Dunes, where it is not abundant.

Its delicate blue blossoms belong in a long lost prairie where, I can only imagine, a carpet of tiny blue stretches all the way to the horizon.
