  1. You have captured Ruellia brittoniana, the Mexican petunia. It’s not really in the petunia family, and it obvious grows elsewhere than Mexico. I know so much about it because it’s one of the first Texas wildflowers I learned about – and one of the things I learned is that it’s not a Texas native! But it’s very pretty, isn’t it?

  2. Hello Linda:

    Thank you for providing the name of the flowers. I’m not very good at identifying flowers. Roses are perhaps the only flowers I can recognize, mind you.

    Even though these purple flowers are original of Mexico, they are quite common in this part of the world. Flowers, no matter the color, size, or shape, are always a magnificent site for a sore eye.
