Today's Flowers *Spiderwort*


Spiderwort is one of my favorite wildflowers. I love how some are blue, and some have a purple tint to them. I "Googled" Spiderwort and had to laugh when I read that it is also called "Cow Slobber"! Ha! It sure is too pretty to be related to slobber, in my opinion. However, since it is plentiful in fields and pastures, I guess I can see how it would have received that nickname. It is said that the gooey sap you find if you break off the tip of the Spiderwort is why it got the Cow Slobber name. Regardless, I think it's a beautiful flower, and I'm always happy to see it start showing its beauty, because then I know that spring is here.

Before you go back to researching Lipovox, blog hopping, Facebook games, or whatever it was you were doing, I highly suggest you click on the badge at the top of this page and visit some more participants. Before you know it, your day will be completely filled with beauty!

** I'm posting early, because I'm going away this evening and will probably end up sleeping in late in the morning (even though there's a fox with kits down the road I want to go photograph). So, you get my post early. Hopefully I'll remember to sign in on the linky later. hehe**
