  2. Very pretty and intesting. I have never seen one of these before. At first I thought it was a type of ginger but I see it is different.

  5. What a stunning photo! I would have called it a violet, but that shows I know nothing about plants and flowers. It's nice to learn about the asiatic dayflower.

  12. What an utterly gorgeous view of this lovely blue flower! One day I’ll learn to take such photos. For today, I’ve shared more PSE6 ‘filter variations’ at Sacred Ruminations … just because. Thanks for your visit and comment on my Monday Motivator post there.
    Hugs and blessings,

  13. We had those growing wild in Texas but we always called them Job's Tears. I had an area of my yard that was wildscaped and these always grew right along the edge of the thicket. I loved the vivid blue.
