BLUE MONDAY! SPRING FEVER!

Let's revisit the
White Flower Farms
Spring 2009 catalog
and drool over 
their 
Blue Flower 
offerings.....

How about these Campanulas
they bloom in June & July.
This variety is 3 feet tall.

Adenophora confusa

Ahhh....Delphiniums.
Again they bloom in June
and again in September.

Delphinium Magic Fountains Strain

Sea Holly....
Not in my zone,
but I buy them 
as an annual.

Eryngium Sapphire Blue

Lavender - can you imagine the scent?

Lavender Patch

My very favorite -
Hydrangea.
This is an Endless Summer.
I planted a few in my garden
and last year
I got one bloom per bush.
I think I need to move them
they are in too much shade.

Hydrangea macrophylla Endless Summer™

A flower catalogue is the perfect place to dream. They all look perky and perfectly blue.

Stacey said...

What a good idea! I've never grown blue flowers much although I like them. My mom always has them.

Mojo said...

You definitely picked some winners here. The hydrangea is always a safe bet -- if you can keep them alive that is. I've never had much luck with that, but they sure are nice while they last.

Twice as Nice said...

I have a blue hydrangea too. Since I've planted it I've gotten green leaves but no flowers...not sure of why. Hopefully this summer it will bloom.

Cynthia said...

Great post Robyn,
Hydrangea's are my fave too and last year I planted a blue one so I'll see what happens this year. If Spring ever comes to us, Cindy

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Beautiful Blue Monday photos and you've also reminded me, we need to amend the soil around our Endless Summers, so they'll be blue,this year!!

JudyBug said...

What gorgeous pics! My favorite is the hydrangea. I'm just dying to plant some of those.

I am longing to have all these blues in my yard, maybe someday when the budget isn't quite so tight.

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Love the blue flowers !

Carol said...

Beautiful! I love the blues! Great post!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I love blue flowers too! I have lavender and hydrangeas growing in my garden.
I think hydrangeas need a lot of water at theri roots, too.

Lisa (aka) French said...

Tell you what I will decorate if you will garden for me;) Fair trade?? lol French;) xoxo

Heidi Pocketbook said...

Your blue flowers are pretty! The hydrangeas on the north side of my house do fine, so maybe you need to just be patient with your new ones--they might need Miracid (it's like Miracle Gro only acidic).

Thanks for your visit and the bday wishes☺

Melissa Miller said...

Very pretty!
I do love Hydrangea as well. ;)

Blondie's Journal said...

Robin,

I adore each & every one of these BLUE flowers!! I have never heard of Sea Holly but it is very cool. I think I will have to try it as an annual as you do!

Thanks for sharing. I left a comment on Pink Saturday. I am playing catch up! Thanks for visiting me!! :-)

Picket said...

Hey girl....I love seeing blue in a garden and I adore Hydrangeas....I have a huge one that blooms pink and purple....can't wait to see some color in the yard! Hope you are having a great day!

myroseretreat said...

Oh my goodness! The blue hydrangeas are my favorite. I have one bush and no matter how much fetilizer I add to the soil it still blooms pink!!! Love, love, love the blue flowers, all flowers!

Hill upon Hill said...

What stunning photo's.

Elaine said...

Beautiful photos. My favorites are hydrangeas too except I can't grow them here in Phoenix. :(
My fathe-in-law grows gorgeous ones in San Diego so I have to resign myself to enjoying his when we visit....and bring home armloads to dry for arrangements !
