FOTD – October 15 – Blue Plumbago

It seems more and more of my plants can’t follow the script when it comes to staying true to their colour, as i have amply described in previous poppy FOTD’s.

Here is the latest one to want to ‘wing it’ – my ‘blue’ plumbago, or one of several plants in particular. 🙂

So, as it turns out, is the extremely tiny spider! – A single petal is around 1cm (0.4 in) long.

(Expanding the image would greatly help!)

This is what the other two stems should have looked like! 🙂

    • I would certainly agree! 🙂

      I have several of these plants, some have pure white flowers some have the baby blue colour. They’ve always stayed just one colour per plant… until this year?? Weird…

      … but pretty with it. 😉
