Thanks for the visit to my site.
I never used to like blue but I keep seeing posts from you ladies who pick the nicest hues of blue and use them beautifully. I see it in a whole different way now.
My decorative bird house actually has a bird building a nest in it this year. I hope he stays because it is right beside my front steps and walkway.

Loved all of the blue!! Will the pansies, etc. last all summer up there? Here in Colorado, it gets too hot in July & August and pansies just don't do well. Some I planted last Fall did live in a protected area over winter, however. I love seeing gardens from different areas of the country. Yours look charming! Sally

I think that is one of the reasons I love pansies--truly blue flowers are few are far between. Love your planting!
