Purple Flowers


Does anyone know what flower this is?

We were at the botanic gardens this weekend, and found it but there was no name tag. I Love the way it looks with the pretty tines and purple color!

Just a shot in the dark...

I have no idea. How interesting though!

I am falling in love with gardening, it is just so interesting.

What unusual flowers... they are flowers and not some sort of alien pod thingy... right?

I love the butterfly dress and it's made me consider buying that book too. Eunny made one several years back and she even sewed her own underdress. Of course hers looked fabulous, but I'm afeared that any attempt on my part would not look half as good.

Usually when I find unusual plants I like without identification, they turn out to be weeds. I've actually let a few palmettos grow in my yard because I just like them.
