We have been in a drought for quite some time, so here are some drops from my watering can on China Asters. They are annuals that come in lovely shades of purples and pinks. They aren’t minis, but did come from the Botanical Interests seed packets. A pleasure when a lot of the garden is beginning to fade.

Eek, WordPress won’t let me use the old way of posting. If you know how to get back to the old way, let me know. On the photo, Wild Asters are weeds I treasure in my garden.

Picture This couldn’t correctly identify this, but in all the pastels it is nice to have a deep dark magenta pop up. Could it be a nicotiana?

Another tiny set of flowers from the seed packets. I don’t know the name. My dog literally ate the paper packets after I planted the seeds.
Update: Thanks to Tania for the suggestion of downloading Picture This, now I know that this is Globe Candytufts.

I don’t know the name of this little bloom, but in case you are interested all of the minis, except the plumbago, are from mixed seed packets from Botanical Interests. They appear to only ship within the USA.
Update: This is a linear leaf snapdragon, also known as weasel’s snout.

Closeup on a plumbago flower that really is blue.

Nemesia fruticans, tiny purple flowers that are called Bluebird (not blue). They reminded me of butter, but I couldn’t figure out why until I realized this is the color of my butter dish.

I have no idea what these little green flowers with stamens here and there are called. Do you?

I’m a great fan of miniatures and have been pleasantly surprised at the range of mini flowers that have bloomed from seed packets this year. This is Lobularia maritima measuring 4mm across. I won’t always know the names nor measure each one in this series.
