|Feel free to toss this. I just wanted to try and make a banner! Does this one work for that?|

|What kind of flowers are they? Very pretty and delicate!|

|Nice picture. The title of this banner says spiderwort, but they are actually dayflowers. The are in the same family but different genus. Dayflowers are genus Commelina, and Spiderworts are genus Tradescantia.|

|Neat banner! Cannot say exactly what about it grabs me, but it sure is easy to look at and enjoy.|

|Toss it It's great!!|
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

| Yes, Donald it will work for that! Good job!|
Good on the ID Jay!
(I have a version of Commelina that hitchhiked across the country with me in a container. I find them very enthusiastic...wherever their seed may land )

|Enthusiastic they are, dirt. |
Like the banner a lot, Donald.
Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cackle maniacally and people back away from you slowly.

|It's a wonderful banner Donald. It's fresh like a cool spring breeze!|

|Jay is correct on the identification. I know this somewhere in the back of my mind. I've just known the plant as being called 'Virginia Spiderwort' for decades and that's what I always remember first and how I'd labeled the photo. Maybe I'll learn and remember Commelina one of these days. So far I've reached the point where I know spiderwort is incorrect, but can't pull the correct name out of the slush that is my mind. For all the pretty blooms, it's a difficult plant to eradicate when it's growing where it's not welcome.|
Now if only someone would hybridize an iris in that exact color! One of the very few blooms I consider true blue without a hint of purple, lavender, lilac or pink - just blue.
Thanks for the thumbs. Hope you enjoy it.

|Being a blue lover, this never fails to catch my eye! Pleasing banner. Ghana has also issued a stamp featuring this Commelina. |
