ABC Wednesday V is for . . .

Verbena is also known as Vervain. Sweet-scented, it attracts butterflies and bees.
Veronica (Veronica longifolia)
Viola 'Jackanapes'
Violet (Viola odorata)
Violets and veronica grow like weeds in our garden and spread further each year. This delights me.

  1. It would delight me too ;-) Wish it was Summer again *sigh*

  2. Nothing beats self-perpetuating beauties unless they're self-spreading beauties starting with the letter of the week. A great selection of V flowers in your garden, Janice. I love them all. Great shot of the bee, too.

  3. Flowers make me smi--BEEBEEBEEBEEBEE--le.

  4. You were victorious with all of your "v's."

  7. What a vibrant 'v' post! All of the flowers are so pretty. Verbena is one of my summer favorites. Although the blooms are fabulous it is the vivid shot of the bumblebee that really catches my eye.

  8. I wished it was the season again to see these beautiful flowers life !
    We have a very stormy weather right now. The storm was announced for the night which was very quiet and now it starts when people have to go to work ! I am still "out" with my cold !

  9. Verbena is one of my favourites - though I didn't know of its other name - so thanks for this.

  10. Fantastic color and detail. Great captures.

    Darryl and Ruth :)
