Blue Daze, sounds like summer and organization

- I spotted this plant at the Kroger (grocery store) near my office a few weeks ago and brought it home because of its gorgeous blue blossoms.  It's Blue Daze Evolvulus, but I just call it Blue Daze.  :)  It is a cousin to the Morning Glory. 

- Its blossoms are closed in the evening when I get home from work, so my only chance to see it in all its glory are on Saturday and Sunday mornings.  Blue Daze...just sounds like summer, doesn't it?

- And for something entirely unrelated:  I spotted this recipe for Nutella Brownies on someone's facebook post this morning and am adding it to Pepperplate.  You can see the last few recipes I added - mostly summertime dishes.  I love Pepperplate because I can open the app on my phone at the grocery store and view ingredients.  My sisters got me started - it's a good tip to pass on, I think.

I do not have a smartphone so I wonder if I could add the Pepperplate app to my Kindle. Guess all I can do is try.

It's cool how the blossoms open and close. Nice color, too.

I love cool apps like that and I just tried Nutella muffins from the French bakery last week. To die for!

That is a most Beautiful plant---Gorgeous Gorgeous Blue....WOW!

Nutella is certainly having a resurgence----I first heard of it in the early 1980's.....and then it got all quiet....Now, it's back with a Bang!!! YUM!!!

Blue Daze is stunning. And fills me with yearning. I wonder whether we can get it - and whether it is as invasive as its cousin Morning Glory?

Blue days would all be good if they looked as beautiful as that blue daze! :)

Love the idea of Pepperplate! That's a clever App isn't it?

The flowers are lovely and I like the name Blue Daze. I'll have to write about character with eyes the color of Blue Daze:~)

I also like that blossoms open and close...nature is so clever:~)

Hope the summer is going well for you:~)

A pretty flower, Very nice close-up.
This year have hardly done gardening- warm clear weather has been so rare so far- Cool 60's again today. Next I'll look in Home Depot for petunias or impatiens. Seedlings are still so small that I planted!
I really like Nutella too- by the spoonfull! Brownies won't last long around here...

Hi Lynn - lovely impromptu buy - looks very peaceful to have hanging outside ... while the app sounds interesting .. I've never been that keen on Nutella - but chocolate brownies .. not those I could eat til the cows come home - but I'd burst by then!

Happy summer days .. Hilary

Yet another lovely flower I've not heard of before. Am I the only person who hasn't tried Nutella?

I have to say Nutella brownies do sound lovely but just thinking about them has added 3 pounds to my weight! :D

I don't have a phone so can't use any apps!
