Simply Beautiful – 14

Number 14 in this occasional series of posts will feature a very special little plant with the bluest flowers you could imagine – Commelina dianthifolia. This little gem of a flower is commonly called the Bird-bill Day Flower as each flower lasts but a day and they emerge from bird bill shaped green sepals. We were given our plant by gardening friends Gordon and Mona and we treat it like a special friend itself.
