Estrella/Today's Flowers #31

@ mirandablue
 Estrella, Star of Bethlehem, Lagrimas de San Diego, Isotoma longiflora Mill.

Found it in a pot at the back of an old church in Ilocos Sur last year.

If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden. -- Claudia Ghandi

I have never seen a flower like that. It's beautiful! And the size of the leaves, most impressive!

Yeah I saw a lot of flowers in Ilocos Sur which are new to me. They look exotic I thought it's sampaguita but the leaves are different.
