I remember the first time I ever saw this flower. It seems like it was yesterday....one of those memories that stops time and you remember it forever.
We were driving on the New Deal Potts Rd near Portland TN. I saw this purple flash out of the corner of my eye. I asked my husband, at the time, to stop. Whatever it was, was in the weeds along the side of the road. I wanted to see what had caught my attention. When I got out, picked it and brought it in the car, I wept as I looked at it. I had never seen anything so beautiful...so intricate in design. I was totally amazed at its beauty.
