One of the toughest little flowers

I was taking a constitutional through Dogtown the other day. Along the railroad tracks I found this little plant growing in the ballast.

My wildflower book tells me that it is called Blue Curls.

This plant is in the mint family.

It likes dry, open, sandy or sterile sites.

Te han quedado muy bien...Las flores azules son sin duda alguna mis preferidas...

La que espero tener alguna vez en mi jardín es " La rosa azul"...Aunque se han invertido muchísimos millones para obtenerla y lo más parecido la consiguió la empresa japonesa Suntory, pero su color no llega al azul, es un burdeos, no todos sus pigmentos son azules...

Puede que sea un imposible, pero espero tener una :-)

Y éstas que has captado, como todas las azules, son preciosas.
