Blue Balloon Flowers


If you type in balloon flowers for a search, this flower actually comes up because before it opens up, the petals fold together to form a balloon.


This is a perennial flower, and comes in many different colors as well, such as red, pink, blue, and purple that I've seen so far.


My time is tied this weekend because my son's soccer team is going into a playoff, so we will be in and out of the house a lot. Have a great weekend everyone!

Linking to Photo Challenge-Blue, Macro Friday, Today Flowers and Blue Monday!
