If you have two loaves of bread sell one and buy flowers. For although the bread will nourish your body, the flowers will nourish your soul.

More Flowers

One more shot for my records. The larger purple flowered plant is a perennial, Tradescantia 'red grape' (Spiderwort). Isn't that a terrible name for a flower? The daisy is an annual, Osteospermum (African Daisy) 'Zion Pink Sand'. This is my first year for the african daisies, and I think this might become a garden staple. The plants are full of blooms. Time will tell how they do throughout the summer. I'm not totally crazy about the color. They have a tendency to look a little more sand than pink...the first photo actually makes them look more pink than they are in real life. But they're still pretty.
