Another flower and another (short) work day

These pretty flowers that Anne planted are called Sanetti Pericallas, but look like a blue/purple daisy to me. They started out in the house, then moved outside where they bloomed again. Their flowers are described as "deep blue" above the green foliage. They are just very pretty flowers to me, though I can't resist reading the little label that comes with them, anymore than I can keep from reading the sometimes purple prose on wine labels that purports to describe the wine, always in glowing terms. I only work from 11 to 4 on what promises to be a sunny 80 degree Tuesday. Whether at work or play, I hope your day goes well.

I saw some of those flowers in the garden centre yesterday and was struck by the very bright blue of the flowers. They were expensive so I didn't buy them

Hmmm...Anne did not mention cost, but I am sure she did not spend much.

Those are gorgeous flowers! I do hope you work day goes quickly so that you can enjoy the nice weather you have. I always do pink and purple displays in the garden. I need some like Anne has planted. So pretty!

It was quite busy for a Tuesday and I agreed to work on Friday for someone, so I will have several days on the paycheck this period.

I finally found a sword fern plant at Home Depot of all places. Armstrong only had huge plants which would not fit in my planter. After buying the fern, I stopped at Whole Foods and bought some of those Italian single entree meals I like so much. I had more on my to do list, but since sunshine only broke through the gloom at about 2:00, I'm not full of energy. So this is it for the day, besides reading and practicing my Spanish on Duolingo, that is.

They look like purple daisies to me, too. I thought, perhaps, you can put purple food coloring in the dirt to create this effect. LOL

Yes, they so resemble daisies, don't they.

I love blue flowers in my garden. Violets, morning glories, daisies like these above and the periwinkle - did you know that the Greek Blue is called Periwinkle Blue.
