  • I’m guessing you might already know the name of your blue flowers??? 😉

    I have One in Blue and One in White in my garden! Plumbago! – from the Latin for which Chemical Element?

    (Your other flowers reminded me of your Art class ceiling tiles!) 🙂

    Have Fun. 🙂

    • Nope, not until you told me! The curiosity was nagging at me….it’s GRAPHITE??? How did that happen? I’m easily amused finding humor in all sorts of situations. It’s easy for me to have fun. 😀

      • Graphite which is made from carbon….hm there’s gotta be a story behind this one!

      • That is possibly one of the most important qualities anyone can have! The ability to be able to see humour in all situations. being able to counter-balance sadness with fun! 🙂 May you never lose it!

        Close! 😉 Graphite is a form of the element Carbon and is the reason pencils can write on paper. The graphite is commonly called pencil ‘lead’. Lead is a soft, dense metal but is quite distinct from Carbon. The element (metal) Lead was known by the Romans as Plumbum. Possibly due to the fact that lead can have a soft bluish tinge or because the person who named it thought it could cure lead poisoning (which you can’t get from sucking on a pencil tip!) 🙂 The blue flowered plant was given the name Plumbago (appearing like lead).

        From plumbum the English name of Lead Wort is sometimes used for the Plumbago!

        Circle complete! 🙂
