Blue-eyed Grass at the Dorcas Bay Fen, June 2013

On the boardwalk through the Dorcas Bay Fen on the Bruce Peninsula, I also came across tiny Blue-eyed Grass flowers.  Lovely gems, blue-purple, growing near their larger showier Iris relatives.  The flowers are around a half inch wide and the plant can grow from four to twenty inches high.  Their Latin name is Sisyrinchium angustifolium.
