Gardening-Dayflowers

This undated photo shows a dayflower in New Paltz, New York. The cheery blue color of dayflowers (Commelina communis) — so named because each flower lasts but a day. You have to get fairly close to the plant, or really stop and look at it, to even see its blossoms. The plants’ stems and leaves, though, are quite bold, seemingly ready to gobble up any piece of ground they can grab with their succulence and lushness. (AP Photo/Lee Reich)
