You are very welcome- I’m so happy you enjoyed the pics @christina4, @ana6, @Katt, @christine4, and @krissie117! I was able to catch some lucky nice weather that day, I’m glad the colors and vibrancy showed through in the pictures!
The sixth picture is of a plant called Oxalis (“Purple Shamrock”). I always called it the “purple butterfly plant” because the leaves open during the day and look like many beautiful butterflies
There is a full guide if you are interested on Our House Plants!
About the Purple Shamrock
Three is often the magic number when it comes to Oxalis . The most common species grown as a houseplant is Oxalis triangularis which has three common names, False Shamrock , Purple Shamrock and Love Plant .
It has three (normally) purple heart shaped leaves, which each have three sides, that sit symmetrically to one another at the end of every petiole (or “stem”). The overall effect is that they end up looking like a trio of butterflies joined together by their noses. Other species are similar in shape, except they tend to have green leaves instead.
The plant is also a little bit magic, because it can revive itself from the dead! Rather than being intrinsically linked with the soil like many other plants, Oxalis is linked to the soil by its tiny bulbs.

I gave an oxalis plant to my mother as a gift many years ago and she still has it- growing both outside and in pots indoors! It seems to be pretty hardy and strong, as well as being beautiful and romantic
