Same thing with this purslane. The flowers are small. You might not pay much attention to just one, but put them all together and WOW!
It's kind of a shame the tiny little blooms don't get much attention--but they should. They may not be spectacular large flowers..but instead they are delicate and sweet.
Look at the pretty pink flowers coming from the coral bells.
I have no idea what this is--I think a bird left me a treat. It almost looks like a tiny sweet pea. It gave me such a surprise to walk by this bed of all green and see this cute little purple flower. (maybe a weed, but I tend to like some weeds!) :)
And of course the flowers from wandering jew and purple heart are so tiny, but really pretty. I tried and tried, but my camera just could not capture the purple of these flowers.
I can't remember what type of plant this is-and I should because I buy one every year to put by the pond, but look at the tiny white flowers. They make this ordinary green ivy look so pretty.
I buy underwater grass for the pond-the fish like to hide in it and I like the look it gives. What I didn't know until last year, is that if it gets enough sun, it blooms! Look how cute these little white flowers are. Look closely, do you see the big water spider?
When several of these flowers are blooming at the same time, it really adds a nice touch to the pond.
The ground cover between the stepping stones in back never fails to delight me with their tiny, tiny blue flowers. They bloomed all summer last year.
"tiny bloom"--the tiny, tiny white flowers from this sedum. I bought this plant last year at a neighbor-
hood plant sale. I have no idea what it is (Cindee, a little help please), but it remains one of my favorite plants.
When my youngest son was a little boy in pre-school, he learned a song called "Good Things Come in Little Packages..." I think we can say that about some of our plants that don't offer a huge, showy flower, but instead give us a quiet, peaceful little bloom. Good things do come in little packages!
What is your favorite "tiny bloom?"
