Little Beauty In My Garden


I saw this beautiful, little lavender color flower in my front garden, where the soil is mostly clay. It grew at the same spot that I've planted gladiola two years ago. Only the gladiolus never sprouted, and this year this flower took its place.


I have no idea what it is called, but absolutely delighted to see two little flowers. They could have easily missed if I didn't pay attention. I am, however, attracted to any shade of purple, so these flowers got my full eyes.


Then this giant critter landed right inside of the flower while I took the pictures. It looked like earwig, but it could also be the great black wasp. I just wanted to snap a couple of pictures, and left the bug to do its business.


Anyway, I changed my mind about this bug after I got a few pictures, I shook it off since I didn't want it to eat away my beautiful flowers. I want to enjoy it for a few more days. Yes, I know, I'm bad!!!

  7. Lovely little blue flower, I can understand that you didn't want it to be eaten by the bug. Though, the little black visitor brought a lot of interest in the photo.
    Thanks for the beautiful contribution to macro Flowers Saturday!

  8. It appears to be some form of lily. I have a pink one that looks very similar and it blooms after a rain. I hope you find its name. It's too pretty to go nameless!

  11. It was more likely to be pollinating your lovely flowers than eating them! I love that you can see the wasp's shadows on the petals! Beautiful colour!

  16. It is a beautiful flower and I love the color. Maybe it is the kind of bug that do not eat flowers.

  20. Lovely flower dear Mumsy. I don't know the name of it, but it is very pretty!

  21. That's quite a trade-in for your gladiola. Such a nice delicate flower.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would do the same too, I would not only shake it, I might squash it to prevent it from further eating the flowers.

  23. Beautiful shade of tree and the petals put me in the mind of a lily. Something ate my yellow lilies, maybe something like that bug?? I tried spraying them with mint mouthwash and lemon joy to detract the bugs, but it did not work.

    You took exquisite photos!
