    A week or so ago, I posted a picture of a plant and asked if anyone knew the name of the flower. Amazingly, I found a small "second show" of this flower while walking around my daughter's neighbor hood. This flower appears as though it is in the early blooming stage, with not much blue showing, but I think there is enough here for anyone who is familiar with this particular flower to be able to identify it...thus making me very happy! While it appears to have a purple hue, here, it is very blue...turning a purplish as it fades. Blessings to anyone who can tell me it's name. (Barbara)
