Flower Friday for Mom
We're hopelessly behind in memes and visits to our friends, but we wanted to cheer up Mom by posting for Flower Friday.
Welcome to our back yard jungle.
The phlox (P. paniculata) is in full bloom now, and we have it in white, pink, and various shades of purple. This is a native plant.
These are Ruellia, also known as wild petunia. Each flower lasts only a day, but another comes along to take its place. They add a bit of pale purple-blue color to the shade under the big oak trees.
