This is my first time to participate in "Blue Monday," and I would like to thank Sally at Smiling Sally for taking the time to be our hostess. Be sure and visit Sally and the other participants to see what they are sharing today.
One of my favorite blue things is our Chaste Tree (Vitex agnus-catus), which has the most gorgeous blue blooms during late spring and summer.

Some of you might know the Chaste Tree as Texas Lilac, or Lilac Chaste Tree, because its blossoms are reminiscent of the common lilac.
It's a sprawling plant that can grow to be 10-20 feet tall and about as wide, but we keep ours cut back so it won't take over our waterfall area.
These pictures were taken last summer, and I can't wait for it to bloom again.
This was fun and I look forward to seeing what blue treasures everyone has in store for us today. In the meantime, I hope your Blue Monday is filled with sunshine!
