I would like to thank Sally at Smiling Sally, our gracious "Blue Monday" hostess, for continuing to host our Blue Mondays, even though she has had a couple of serious surgeries in the past few weeks. I hope this finds Sally feeling much better and enjoying Spring.
I love blue flowers, especially in summer gardens. Even when planted in a sunny location, they seem to look "cooler" and more soothing to me than some of the "hot" reds, yellows, and oranges of summer flowers like zinnias and geraniums.
I was surprised by how many pictures of blue flowers I have in my "Flower Pictures," and thought I would share them on this Blue Monday (I "borrowed" some of these from the Internet, too).
I took this picture in Vicksburg last summer. I love the contrast of the blue and pink Hydrangeas.
I don't think there's anything prettier than old-fashioned Morning Glories growing on a fence. Our granddaughter Avery and I planted these a couple of years ago ...
I captured these delicate little blue Dayflowers while on a photo shoot in Canton, Mississippi.
One of my favorite blue-flowering plants is the Chaste Plant in our courtyard. It has the most gorgeous "spiky" blue blossoms, and blooms most of the summer (I took these pictures a couple of summers ago).
Here are a few more of my favorite blue flowers ...
I guess my least favorite blue flower is a Blue Rose. It's pretty, but it just doesn't look "natural" to me.
This little Johnny Jump-Up is in a basket of mixed flowers I bought at Home Depot over the weekend, which I'm going to feature in a post later this week. I love the contrast of the blue and yellow ...
Can you add more blue flowers to the list?
filled with lots of Spring sunshine!
