The blooms are small, but so lovely that I just had to take a close up to show their beauty. Thanks for your comment.

This photo reminds me why my son (13 now) loves lobelia erinus.
I generally plant perennials.
But this beautiful flower has brought my son and I close, planting them together each year.
Something wonderful to do besides football, racing, and such!
