Blue



Blue is my favorite color in the garden.  German iris and Siberian iris are blooming now, along with veronica and salvia.  My peonies have opened, too.  

Oh, how I love spring.  :)

Mmmmm that is delicious. I have those in bloom too, although not as many this year. I think I need to divide & replant.

Lovely! I'm looking forward to the peonies. (Hint, hint.)

Exquisite photo, Mary. I miss my iris. Raining this morning in Maryland but it was nice to listen to as I took my time waking up.

Oh, mine too! Here the hydrangeas are blooming - mostly blue near my house - pink scattered about, and white here & there, but mostly, mostly blue. My across the street neighbor has a huge section of some kind of wort flower - a hazy blue field of blooms each morning, closing each evening, but there again to greet me over breakfast the next day. Blue. Yes.

Iris reminds me of my Momma. She loved them and the bed is still at the house filled with ones from her grandmothers house. Unfortunately, Daddy doesn't like them much and mows them down now. I love the blue one in the picture. Just beautiful.

Love the blue! This is my first year with iris, and I am so excited when they pop open so I can see what they look like.

I marvel at the complexity of nature and how the program resides inside a tiny seed. Beautiful.

I find it so interesting to compare everyone's "take" on flowers. Beautiful capture. And....looking forward to more!
