It is now a habit for me to visit my sister's school on Sunday for a cup of coffee. Along the way, I pass through teacher's village where home owners have planted near the sidewalks beautiful flowers. Here is one flower which attracted me along my Sunday walk.
Here is a new photo taken at QC Memorial Circle.
It shares the common name (in the Philippines), "Forget-me-not", with other flower plants, a problem with using common names for flowers! This flower is native to South Africa.
