Evolution never stops

One Blue Verbena Flower

Just took a picture of the Verbena Bonariensis in my garden and realised to my absolute delight that evolution occurs every day, it’s just that we hardly ever notice.

Why, well take a look at this picture, I have not changed the colour of anything…. and there’s one little petal that has decided it didn’t want to be purple. So the bees that pop in here are going to take a little blue away with them to pollinate another verbena.

Isn’t nature just the best garden art form ever, as well as it being fascinating?


pretty cool huh?
