  1. Lovely photos and haiku, Libby. That little blue, bi-coloured flower reminds me a little of lobelias - it's beautiful.

    Thanks for participating in Floral Friday Fotos!

  8. I've never heard that name before, 'blue eyed Mary' - I don't know what the name is in Dutch but certainly not that... I would have remembered then. Lovely!! (We do have a flower that's called 'Suzanna with the beautiful eyes' in the Netherlands, but 'she' is orange)

    1. We have yellow daisies that are black in the middle. We call them "black-eyed Susans.". Sounds like the same flower. I need a bouquet of marys and susans!
