Birthday Mystery Flowers

My best friend sent me flowers today for my birthday! Aren't they beautiful? I want to know what these tiny purple ones are. Each little bloom is the size of my pinkie finger. Does anyone know?



Here are the tiny ones! Any ideas?


I won't tell you my age, I will just say I am now somewhere between a geezer and a senior.

   Oh, how sweet the light of day, And how wonderful to live in the sunshine! Even if you live a long time, don’t take a single day for granted. Take delight in each light-filled hour…
Ecclesiastes

Sending you happy birthday wishes, Ginny! Have a wonderful day!
The bouquet is just beautiful but I’m sorry I don’t know what those purple flowers are.
Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, Ginny!! Hope you had a wonderful day! I think those purple flowers might be statice. You can dry them and they last for a long time.

Beautiful flowers Ginny. I have an app on my phone for identifying plants and decided to try taking a picture form the computer screen.This app tells me the purple flowers are Perez's Sea Lavender.BTW,the app is called Garden Answers and I am pretty sure it was free.
