We have a similar flower here, called a desert bell. I love it.

I grew up calling these blue bells too turns out its called butterfly pea...Bluebells are a wide range of purple, blue, violet colored flowers shaped like a bell.
Love your blog.

you know I was chatting with one of my friends the other day. I have known her for about 8-9 years and I saw that you and her went to the same School in bangalore and you are on her FB friend list. No I am not stalking you hahhaa.
Small world huh...when I told her, she was like "how do you know priya?" I told her I Dont know you and yet know through your blog.
Cheers

Thank you for the fascinating link. Am waiting for a second set of Butterfly Pea flowers on my plant to try it out.
