Pictures for Pam, Day 104: Salvia Greggii Blossom

Pictures for Pam, Day 104: Salvia  Greggii Blossom
(+3 insets)

It's been a while since I posted any pictures from my trip to San Anselmo so I thought I'd fix that today! It's so miserable outside right now that all I want to see right now are blossoms and bright colors!

Nathalie's garden featured many different plants and flowers and many of the blossoms were quite small. That meant they were perfect for me! The flower I'm posting today was maybe half an inch long from its pretty face to the end of its tube. Even though it was tiny, it was easy to see that it was covered with hairs! Thank you for all of your help to try to identify this flower! I was able to find some pictures of "Salvia greggii" that Ron Hanko suggested and they are the same! But the blossoms definitely have the traits of the other flowers suggested, so thank you all!

I am including two insets to show a front view (Look at the fancy hair!! And the funny mini flower on its forehead!) and also a pretty bokeh view with some flowers in the background. Finally, I have another panorama to show the sort of weather it's been today! :)

Pam, I was looking around in your photo stream to see what you had in the way of "purple flowers" and found this delightful picture of an upside-down butterfly on Buddleia flowers…I was particularly tickled that you called the Fritillary a Butterfly Bat! :D I love it! :) It's another warm soup day so I'll be sending some via my virtual teleporter! :) I hope you like cream of mushroom soup, we made a lot of it! :D *HUGS*

What a gorgeous flower and the fact that it's only about half an inch long, is just amazing. I have a plant called a Spirea, it's pink with loads of tiny flowers on one plant - the flower itself is only about an inch and a half. I'm afraid I don't know the name of your plant but it's gorgeous nevertheless. Yes your weather isn't very pretty I must admit, but this afternoon we actually had some lovely sunshine!!!

I think it's a Salvia, Janet, possibily Salvia greggii, but by whatever name... Great photos! Like the different perspectives and really like the composition on that first inset. Cold and snowy here. Doesn't seem to want to change.
Have a great day with a lot of treasures and photos.

Ich halte die Pflanze ebenfalls für eine Salbei- Art. Scheint aber bei uns nicht heimisch zu sein (oder?). Die Lippenblüte (Lamiaceae) ist in ihrer natürlichen Pracht ganz herrlich ins Bild gesetzt. Man schaut sich das Foto gern etwas länger an. Wirklich schön, liebe Janet.

What a great series of this beautiful flower. The blossom in the main picture looks like a pink animal which opens his mouth. It looks beautiful how the blossom is shining in the sunlight.
