Gaura “Whirling Butterflies”–#AtoZChallenge


Here is my “G” flower, Gaura, called Whirling Butterflies because the flowers flutter in the breeze like butterflies.  It’s also called Wind Flowers.  I’m not really familiar with them, but they’re listed as a common flower starting with G.  And they look lovely.  They are tiny flowers, like forget-me-nots from yesterday. This is a close-up look.  They bloom from May to August in a bush and come in colors from white to pink.  I might try to plant some this year–we’ll see.

Here’s a photo of them in a garden bed from here


It does look like a crowd of butterflies!

That’s all for today.

Thanks for stopping by.

I am a writer, handworker, artist and teacher (a WHAT!), and a mom of two beautiful daughters who are amazingly 17 and 21. I am working on getting my first book, a fantasy novel for young people, published and am busy spinning on my new spinning wheel. I have been a Waldorf early childhood teacher for 10 years now, and before that, I was a lawyer. Teaching is much more fun.
