I have no clue as to the name of this flower. It grows on a vine by one of the creeks and I don't recall ever seeing it before recently. Perhaps someone can tell me the name of it???

Whatever its name may be it's beautiful !!!!

The wikipedia link provided by Ruth is very much akin to but not the same as this flower.

Barbara found it somewhere. It is named "Spurred Butterfly Pea" I'll be looking for the see pods so I may spread them around other locations on the property.

That is beautiful and sure does look like a butterfly; I've never seen anything like it before. Gorgeous colour too.
