Another Flower Question





I will go looking myself, I promise. But it just occurred to me that I do not know the name of the small, lavender flowers in this photo from my garden. Anyone?

Wax flower has been suggested. Sage, and even larkspur. But the stems are not square. And the stems are purple. Everything I've found have green stems

Nov. 4th - Thanks to DeVona - I believe this is correct. It is oregano!
There are many types of oregano, and I found photos of the plant with purple stems and flowers that look like mine. I am going to gather some and dry it. Thanks very much!

No I don't, but they are beautiful.

By the way, this week I typed out the words of the poem on your banner. I've enjoyed it so many times. Now it's up on my bulliten board of beautiful things.

Bobbie, I have no idea what that is, but the photo is gorgeous.

Just so you'll know, I am having a very hard time getting your comments box open. It takes a very long time to load it, and I think it is because of all the photos on your blog. I know you can't help it, but if you don't see as many comments from me, that is why.

They sort of look like wax flowers

I can't help with identification but that is a beautiful shot!

It wouldn't be a type of oregano would it? Have you rubbed a tiny bit of the leaves between your fingers and smelled them? Looks like a type of herb and you may be able to ID it by smell.

Unfortunately, I have no idea what type of flower this is. It's beautiful, though. Love the colors.
