When I step off the porch to begin my walk, I spot the Virginia spiderworts bordering the sidewalk. Dainty flowers sit atop upright but flimsy stalks and the leaves stretch long and thin. And the flowers – oh, the flowers – exquisite and delicate and lovely. I’m most likely partial to the flowers because of the coloration. The spiderwort displays three purple petals surrounding yellow anthers and purple, hair-like filaments.
