Blue butterflies



Don't you just love this plant? I had never seen one until we found these at Blue Moon Gardens a few months ago. We bought two and they have grown quite a bit. This one has had as many as a dozen blooms at once on this one branch. These are starting to die off but there are new buds coming out on another branch. Hopefully the other plant will have blooms soon too.



Aren't they just too cute?



I did get a little more stitching in on the Red Thread project. I've finished the June square and the top part of the border to that point. I'll try to post a picture of June when I finish the bottom part of the border to that point. Now if I can just get July done in July!

My very favorite nursery (can we even call this state-of-the-art slice of heaven a nursery, Tina?) is Blue Moon Gardens. I love to stroll their grounds. My pocketbook has been opened many a time at their place. And I have, like you, linked to them in previous posts to share with others who visit this area! And what about those fairy gardens they have!
xoxo, Brenda

Hi Tina, this is a lovely plant and the little fowers are so delicate and sweet...I love the name too....Blue Butterflies, and Blue Daze are both so pretty. What I think is so neat is your yellow and white home surrounded by lush green plants with pretty blue flowers...makes a beautiful picture. Hugs, Linda

Your flowers are so beautiful - I must get some blue daze. I have never heard of them but, if they can take Texas heat, they are for me. You house and yard make me green with envy - all is so nice.
