So many years of experience and still making mistakes!
oh good, I'm not the only one with a mystery purple flower. Pretty!
You are so fortunate to have such beauty surrounding you. I would never leave home... I, alas, am brown-thumbed, and can only admire and envy other's gardens.
gorgeous. it's tradescantia virginica, which carries the unhappy common moniker of spiderwort.i am not a fan of "-wort" attached to anything, yet so many of the common names of lusciously beautiful flowers have that suffix. a little research would undoubtedly tell me why, but i'm about cross-eyed with sleepiness. i love tradescantia because of those incredibly glowing almost neon-looking stamens. they are electric against the blue ground of my own. i like it that they reseed here and there. i've been told that you can whack them back severely post-bloom and they'll bloom again in fall. it's never happened in my garden.
