It is blooming!

For all that wanted to see the Peruvian Scilla aka The belly button, it has started to bloom, in the pics it looks blue, but it really is a light purple with yellow center. It has to be the slowest blooming flower I have ever seen, its taken almost 3 weeks to get to this point.

    When it is in full bloom it will be beautiful-is it fragrant?

    It has a very faint smell, You have to stick your nose completely in the flower to smell it. I found this plant in an overgrow flower bed and this is the first time its bloomed since I bought the house. I have an early post trying to id it.
