Ruellia hookeriana

I can’t believe this photo turned out as well as it did. Carrie must have taken it? I was busy having one of the worst fevers of my life. Thought I was going to die. Opened the car door, threw up, uncontrollably, on a roadside catholic shrine (NOT intentional), and spotted this Ruellia while crawling (literally crawling) back into the car. Made Carrie find us a hotel that was right across the street from an emergency room, just in case.

Two days of my life I never care to remember. Only the vaguest of recollections that she pointed out a new Ruellia to me.
