The forget-me-not flowers
I have discovered that forget-me-nots like the one above start flowering when the flowers are still completely enclosed in their caskets of leaves. Eventually they start peeping out like those above.
While enclosed there seems little chance of pollination, so perhaps these early flowers are self-fertile.
This plant grows below the nort eastern corner of Butterfly Rock and is one of several plants I suspect were brought in as seeds by birds perching on the rock.
