Blue!—flowers not me


For a long time I’ve thought this was Asian dayflower. Preferring to be right not wrong, I checked the vast database (of plant identification and so many other things) we call the internet, and presto! turns out this is another plant ID I had wrong (remember clematis? I do). It’s a spiderwort.

On my walk, I discovered a new Tesla charger powerwall power source* on this house. Must have been installed on Friday or yesterday. Bets on whether they cover it with the brick contact “paper”/vinyl?

Almost got this wrong, too! The Guru said: not a charger, and visited the same data source I did for the flower…so, I was wrong twice today. And now I’m on the correct path.

    Is tradescantia (sp?) the Latin name for spiderwort?

  2. Sammy says:

    Yes: Tradescantia. There’s another example of that superb Pooh-mental-database!

    I do remember clematis but for the life of me I couldn’t remember the name for it over the weekend!
