Along came a spider(wort) and sat down beside her...

I feel like the spiderwort queen this year!

I can't believe how beautiful these blossoms are and how long the plants have been blooming. The first one began producing flowers the week before we left for Ride the Rockies in June, and I'm still getting many flowers on each plant every day.

I've heard spiderwort can be invasive.

I DON'T CARE!!! Let this thing grow and grow and grow! I absolutely love my spiderwort!

I caught a bee cross-pollinating the white and pink flowers last week. I can't wait to see what the seeds will produce, and it will take a couple of years to find out.

In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy the heck out of my newest garden favorite. I didn't think my blue delphiniums could ever be knocked down to second place!


  1. haha even if it invaded everywhere at your place? You could then have one of those places out of a Disney movie.

  2. So pretty beyond imagination, great photos and warm greetings!
