The enchanting family of peas

Meet the butterfly pea - clitoria ternatia

This little creeper (that can climb all over your fence quite fast) reminds me of the land of fairies, pixies and the like... something about its little oval leaves and its thin stems wtih their curly ends is quite celestial. The flower, like all those of the pea family is beautiful - an indigo blue with a little bit of yellow in the center.
