Yes, they were this blue



Relentless breezes made catching these beauties a challenge -- the bruised petals attest to the whip-saw winds.

Tres FaBooo...and yes even slight breeze and all the subtleties of the delicate details is Lost in a Blur.

Wonderful picture...just what I need on my slow recovery! :-)

That particularly deep blue makes me think of Wassily Kandinsky. Thank you so much for these windows into the world you see.

Gorgeous ! I have beach glass earrings made by Gail Rhyno { A Maritime Girl } that are almost a match to this blue.I love how the flower's center is a vivid yelloe with wisps of almost heart shape curls.Wow ! Inspiring.

Bravo for doing the ID AND sharing it. Thanks. I took a photo of a bird yesterday and before I post if I have to find out whether it is a heron or an egret. (Sometimes the "sheep and goats" look a like to me.

Dayflowers, though whether they are Asiatic or native I can't say. Most Commelinas around here are the weedy Asiatic species, Commelina communis. The flowers, regardless of their provenance, are appealing. They are close relatives of the Spiderworts.

Beautiful shade of blue. We have a similar spiderwort that doesn't even come up until our summer rains arrive. Three petals instead of the two you show.
