Todd, when I was very small and was allowed to have my own garden I wanted all my flowers to be blue. My mother had some bluish iris, and then we found spiderwort growing wild in the mountains of eastern KY. We gently gathered all we could carry and moved them into my little garden. I was only about 3 at the time, and was so excited to have my blue garden. Eventually Mom found bluebonnets to add to he mix, but the bluest of them all were the spiderworts and they were still blooming when I grew up and went away to college.
Thank you for the memories.
