August 12, 2013 -- blue lobelia

I had been thinking about blue lobelia--thinking this was the time of year it should be blooming but assuming I didn't have any anymore--when I found a little patch of them blooming in a far, neglected part of the garden. This stem had actually fallen over and was lying on the ground (hence its curve). What a gorgeous blue flower! And every stem on the plant is unusually thick, because it has been so wet this summer. Made a vow to myself not to forget where this plant is, to protect it, and to try to propagate some seeds.
