Kiki over at 'Awake With Charm & Spirit' wrote
a posting on 'The Color Essence of Blue' which
was beautiful and extended an invitation to others
who are inspired by blue to join in.
Blue is a color that I dearly love not only in the
blues of flowers and decor in my garden but also
all throughout my home.
The siding on my home is even a light blue.
Inside my home blue is the main use in decor, from
the blue and white theme in my kitchen....
to the blue furniture and decor in my living room.
Dried blue hydrangea blooms...
Even the bathroom has a blue and yellow decor,
so yes, blue is a color I love.
In the garden I try to find blue flowers of every
kind to grow. Even in the choice of the seeds I
purchase I look for blue flowers.
Blue dwarf Morning Glory's are beautiful
while they last and shearing them back when
they slow down will bring them back for more
Shades of blue in petunia's run more to purples
I believe but for this winters sowing I have found seed
for a blue Celebrity petunia and blue alyssum.
Marine blue helitrope
And some of the perennials that are around in the
flower beds are this Clustered Bellflower.
Blue woolly Speedwell
Blue Hill Salvia is one of my favorites in the
sage family and I have it stuck in two or three beds.
It looks so pretty with the Crimson Bouquet roses.
Even Campunala bellflower Chettle Charm turns
blue on the edges with age.
Tall Phlox or Rockets
Blue Bird Delphinium or Larkspur
Even Jack Frost Brunnera has the prettiest little blue blooms
to start off the spring.
Blue creeping phlox cover the whole bank on the one
side of the garage.
Blue Chip Campanula
Hardy Geraniums which the name now has been
completely forgotten. Johnson??
The Nikko Blue Hydrangea that I had to go into
the archives to get a picture of.
While in the archives I found this picture of the dark
blue hyacinths that bloom in the spring.
I have more blue flowers than I thought.
The decor outdoors has a few touches of blue
added in by pots.
The containers I use to plant the flowers in,
and I will use about anything that holds soil,
are decorated in blue sometimes.
Even in the previous posting of the Amaryllis
that were just started were put in blue and white
Even to the flags in the garden the blue comes into play.
Blue Birds are invited to the garden and their blue
Some of the blues that I planted this Fall to
bloom in the blue section of the woods bed are:
Eryngium Blue Sea Holly
An Oreo Iris
A Out of the Blue re-blooming Iris
Agastache Blue Fortune
And a Jacob's Ladder polemonium
Others that I have but have no pictures for that are
new are Mammouth Blue hosta, Columbine Aquilegia Alpina,
Campanula Blue Waterfalls, and Loddon Royalist Anchusa.
Would you say I am crazy for blue in the garden and out?
Happy Blue Gardening Everyone!
