    • Haha, if you want to go through all the photoshop trouble, be my guest! 😉

      From Wikipedia:
      Campanula portenschlagiana (Dalmatian bellflower, Adria bellflower, wall bellflower) is an evergreen perennial native to the Dalmatian Mountains in Croatia.

    Pretty purple flowers and the dalmation flower, lol! I took photos of a low growing purple flower that looks similar while at the Cape this weekend but I think it’s vinca.

  4. LOL! Dalmation Bellflower…that last one is a hoot!

    Your white-spotted green flower pot looks just like my new cocoa mugs (I don’t drink coffee so yes, they are cocoa or tea mugs). I’ll have to photo them at some point ‘cuz they are just too cute! 🙂

    • Your mugs sound really cute! I bet they are very photogenic, too! 😉
      I have a polka-dotted mug, too, but it’s white and has pastel colored dots all over it.

  7. I saw those cute little plant filled eggs at Wal-Mart… now I really wish I had bought one!!! I’m sure there used to be purple dalmations… I think maybe the fairies have them. ; )

  8. lol! Love the redecorated version.

    It’s a beautiful little flower. It reminds me of the harebells in Colorado.

    Very beautiful! I was going to say Very Lovely, but somehow that sounds like one of those things they say in the south…you know, the ones that sounds like compliments but are really terrible insults. 🙂

    The photos (and the flowers) are quite beautifully lovely.

    hahaha, Brian’s dalamation version is so funny, and awesome! Love your images too. I love how the images are completely purple and green, such a beautiful color combo!
