stress ball flower
I call it the stress ball flower because it reminds me of one of those rubber stress relieving balls that you squeeze. If you ever wondered how those balls were manufactured well now you know. It grows on the end of a long stock right here in Springfield, Missouri. Of course we only grow the purple ones the other colors come from somewhere else entirely. I have a yellow one that was grown in China because I like foreign things and I did not want the hillybilly purple Springfield has to offer.
