The Ephemeral Blue Flax
I am continually amazed at the beautiful, delicate Blue Flax that somehow took hold in my garden. They are awash in color every morning, yet not a single flower remains by the afternoon. They are the very definition of ephemeral.
Ephemeral:Lasting for a short time, transitory, existing only briefly. Ephemeral is from the grek workephemeros, which literally means "lasting only one day."
