I have never seen a flower do this before...

And I am not sure exactly what caused this to happen...

 It certainly doesn't look anything like the other flowers on the same plant...

And it certainly doesn't look like any flower that I have ever seen before.  One thing for sure, though - this butterfly really loves this flower!

I'm sure that this butterfly appreciated the blessing of the additional nectar that this flower had.  Sometimes blessings come in very unique packages - in flowers, and in people!

God bless,


  1. I've had that happen to my blanket flowers (the common name for those plants around here). They are sort of Siamese twin flowers. You may see them in various stages of separation - sometimes they look just like malformed flowers and sometimes they are almost completely separate into 2 but not quite. I think it is a genetic thing because I have had some plants that it is always happening on right next to plants that never have them.

  2. Whoa, that is weird. I have had a blanket flower and that never happened to mine and I have not seen it either. The butterfly is pretty.

  3. I think the butterfly likes it because the flower resembles a butterfly itself :) The leftover petals look like wings to me :)

    Very interesting. There's usually one in every crowd that has to be different, but flowers?

  5. Looks like a mutation in that particular flower. I love to see nature at work.

    Cheers from Bend Oregon,
    Susan aka MoxyFoxDesigns!

  6. Looks like Siamese Triplets. Good eye.

  7. Aha! Thanks, Martha =) I let it go to seed so maybe I will have more of them next year. I got the original seeds from my neighbor, so I didn't even know what their name was *lol*

    Thanks, Marlene. This is the first time I have seen this happen!

    Memories - it was really pretty in person, too.

    *ROFLOL* So true, Jane ;-p

    It does give us a lovely flavor to life, sometimes, Lee!

    Moxy - it was really pretty and very complex.

    Thanks, Carole =) It was hard to tell if it was two or three flowers!

  8. Very cool Kathy!!! And, it's so true, blessings do come in very unique packages ;o)

  9. Cool! Interesting flowers, me too this the first time I've seen like this. How that it happen.


  10. yumi - I have no idea how it happened! Very interesting, though =)

  11. Wow how odd, but still beautiful. Beautiful butterfly too!

  12. Thank you, Pam! It was really unusual, but very pretty, too.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
