Ruellia brittoniana - Desert Petunia

I saw these flowers at West Coast Park growing around a tree. My first impression of this plant was that it was a kind of weed. Although I thought that the flowers were pretty, the leaves were rather unruly and wild.
Most of the flowers were bluish in colour except for a few pink ones. There were several small butterflies fluttering around the flowers and it was my good fortune that one decided to pose for a picture on the flower.
"Hi, what brings you here on this fine morning?"

Nothing lasts forever.
Double happiness.
