Good evening, I hope you had a good start to your week. It has been a bright, clear day here with a little warmth in a sheltered spot, most welcome.
I wanted to share some of the many blue flowers about at the moment: Pulmonaria at the front, not really blue at all, they are more pink and mauve but they have a blue tone to them and so I am including them.
Grape hyacinth, which some of you love to hate, I have no such strong feelings about them but just like to see their blue colour under the hedge.
Cerinthe major purpurascens are self sown. It does seem early for them to be sharing their glaucus blue foliage and dark purple flowers but I am not complaining.
I planted a dozen Hyacinth in my raised beds this autumn and this colour is sumptuous.
In the bottle marked ‘California fig syrup’ given to me by sister Dorris, is a tiny sprig of the brightest little blue flowers of Brunnera macrophylla Dawson’s White
Cathy will be hosting our flowers gathered into vases, you should take a look and perhaps join us, it is lovely to have garden flowers at close quarters.
Right time to go and prepare supper, have a good evening wherever you are. D.
