Floral Friday

 
Posted by Picasa



This is my first time participating in Floral Friday! I'm not sure what kind of flowers these are, but I photographed them in the courtyard of my church last Sunday morning.

Please visit Floral Friday to enjoy more beautiful flowers!

Nicely done, Lois. They are Purple Church Flowers.

I agree with the morning glory. Although it doesn't really matter what the name is - as long as you enjoy them!

Happy Friday - can't wait to see more flowers.

Stine said...

This is my first time too. ;-)

They look like petunias to me...but hey! I live in Canada and I've never seen purple church flowers before. ;-)

My first post is now up too...yeah I think I've read of its name before somewhere. Just couldn't remember it. Anyway, it's a cool purple flower.

Tricia said...

WoW! Lois, these are so pretty & I like that floral friday badge too - new meme? I'm on my way to check it out now

Lisa Wilson said...

Beautiful shade of purple! I've never heard of Floral Friday. I guess I'd better stick with SkyWatch Friday, though, since we only have flowers for a short time here!

I'm having trouble uploading my Bonnie Raitt videos to my Mountains Rule blog. Hopefully it will be posted sometime today!

Floral Friday said...

Those are so pretty and soft looking! Thank you very much for posting on floral friday!!!

Lynette said...

Lovely flowers in your photo, so delicate looking.

Pacey said...

I joined just today on this meme. Glad to have found this from you Lois. Yours is a beautiful flower post.

Clytie said...

I'm going to go with "purple church flowers" as well. I could never pronounce those latin names anyway. Beautiful flowers, I love the color!

Ms. Moon said...

I have always heard them called Mexican bluebells and let me tell you- they are the craziest, most invasive plant you can imagine so be thoughtful before you bring them home. They spread like the devil and once established, they cannot be gotten rid of. Yes, they are beautiful, but unless you want them taking over the world, do not plant them in your yard.

I'd be happy to have those in my yard!
