Boo Hoo, I Nearly Lost My Purple Balloon!

I have not lost my inner child when it comes to the garden.  I love this purple balloon flower dearly.  Purple is definitely my favorite color directly followed by pink or is it the other way around?   I guess it depends on the day.

I have always loved balloons and these flowers look like little purple hot air balloons just before they open.  Tracy Disabato-Aust says you can pop these without damaging the flower, but I wouldn't.  I couldn't.  I never liked to pop real balloons either and the balloon bud is the very best part!

Well, my balloon flower, Platycodon grandiflorus, has been found and it has more balloons to come. Like they say, "Get lost, get found.  Life is good!"
