Spiderwort/ Macro Monday

Macro view of spiderwort (Tradescantia viginiana) blossom

It's one of the longest blooming flowers in my garden. If I cut it back after it flowers, it will bloom again.

The colors of this flower are superb. I don't think I've seen such vivid colors in a flower.

Beautiful colour in your spiderwort, but I hope there's no spiders! They give me the creeps. A spider was crawling up my arm as I was driving home from my son's house today, must have come from his garden. I had to pull over in a panic and catch it with a kleenex and throw the whole thing out of the window. And now I feel guilty cos I'm a litterbug.

Before this post I was at a blog with spider's egg, now a flower called spiderwort. I hope the next one I visit doesn't have a word spider on it, LOL. Anyway, this is a great photo, I love purple flowers. Mine is at Exposed page.

Have a wonderful Sunday evening!

Water drop, fuzzy hairs, yellow buttons---and purple(to me) petals--it's got everything going for it. Nice macro. MB

Pretty little flower! I wonder at all the "worts". It must mean something important!

EG, I find brilliant colors like this (red, purple etc) hard to capture... and you've done it perfectly! Another flower I've never seen...
