A Week of Flowers – Day Five

I am joining Cathy at Words and Herbs for this year’s Week of Flowers sharing images from our gardens. I am adding more blue flowers from my South Florida garden and a post script from yesterday. Below is a Dayflower, a common wildflower I let run free in my garden. I enjoy their ephemeral appearances and interesting common names – one is Widow’s Tears and another (in Spanish) herb of the cooked chicken. I have not eaten any.

Below, making another appearance, the Blue Pea Vine. This one caused some intrigue yesterday, so I looked in the garden to see if I could find a few flowers to make tea. I found flowers and a seed pod, then I made tea.

Blue tea, indeed! Still not very tasty.

Hopefully these images warm up gardeners living in more northern climes. To see more flowery images from around the world visit Cathy at wordsandherbs.wordpress.com.

Happy Gardening!!

  1. So cool! I bought some pea powder that you can make drinks with, so pretty, but yeah, not real tasty!

    Just the novelty of blue tea is worth the effort! Maybe lots of honey to sweeten it?? 😀

    Some plants do have weird names. It makes you wonder why and who thought that one up with the chicken! That tea is intriguing. Such a beautiful colour. Shame it doesn’t taste very nice!
