Flower Photo: Blue Stars at West Chester University

Amsonia Blue Star Flower Photo By Aquariann

I've taken dozens of flower photos already this spring, not to mention hundreds from last year, so it can be daunting to decide what to blog about next. But today's pick for Memorial Day weekend was easy, as I thank my lucky stars for the strong souls that were willing to give all to fight for my freedoms. Amsonia, commonly called Blue Star, is a perfect plant for patriotic holidays.

I came across these clusters of white and blue star-shaped flowers in the courtyard garden behind Emilie K. Asplundh Concert Hall at West Chester University in Pennsylvania. Not far from their pretty petals was the pink flower bush you might have seen Manicure Monday when I showed off the pink ombre nail art I wore to a breast cancer awareness 5K.

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, please add it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.
