CROCHET PATTERNS (Pattern #40 Tiny Purple Flower) – 365 Flowers Bouquet Project

Introduction

I haven't got a name for this flower yet. It's tiny and purple. I think it is a weed, but doesn't really matter, flowers are all beautiful, whether they grow wild or nurtured by gardeners. Post a comment if you know this flower's name…

We got a name! It is the Blue-eyed Grass! Thank you Chris and Jean!

    My 91 year old neighbor in Texas called that Blue-eyed Grass, and he loved it.

    It is blue-eyed grass, a native USA wildflower, not a weed.
