That little blue flower...

The above flower is from my little garden in front of my patio. This plant with many small green leaves is often use in a landscape gardening since its flower bloom all the year around. Because the flower is so tiny, it is hardly notice. Folks, enjoy this image of that little wonder. Have a nice day.

What a gorgeous flower, Pak Idrus! Like a gleaming blue jewel. I will need to look up my book on tropical flowers and garden plants to find out the name. Have a nice day, Pak Idrus and Makcik!

I was trying to find the name of that beautiful little blue flower in my Taman Hiasan book, but it wasn't there. You had some 'pegaga' there too? The whole pic looks so beautiful and alive.

Ahhh, that flower reminds me of my dad! He had them in pots, and there would always be lovely blue flowers smiling up at the sun! He had such green fingers :)

Thanks for taking me back to revisit my memories of dad!

Temuk, thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts on the subject of this posting.

I believe you have seen this plant and its flowers before. It is very easy to plant, the cutting would just grow if the soil condition is right. The flower is just about 1mm in size and yet it glows among the greens.

Glad that you enjoy this image of mine. I did enjoy it too.

You do have a sharp eyes, yes it is the pegaga which I planted in pots there. I love the shape and green of this plant. It does made a gorgeous scene of my little garden.

Have a nice day.

I did not set it up. It was a natural setting that I saw in my little garden. So without wasting any time I took as many snaps of it with my camera and voila! the images turn out great. Thus I am sharing it with all to enjoy it as well.

Much as I had enjoyed taking that photograph I and indeed happy that you enjoy it too. It is the little things like this that made our lives so very colorful.

Have a nice day.
