Garden Blues

                   Hello everyone,

                     We had some April showers here yesterday,
                     to bring on those May flowers that we look
forward to each year.
                     A tour around the garden yesterday  revealed
                     some spring bulbs poking up in several beds.
                   But moving on with our garden blues theme~
                  Although lupins grow wild here on the Island
            I enjoy having some in the garden as well.

                 Not all of my garden blues are plants.
                       The old shed above adds color and interest
all year long.

                                  I love the tall stately spires of these deep
blue delphiniums.

            Each spring I divide my delphiniums and
      move them around the garden.

                                                     The blue forget me nots are so pretty
                                                      in the spring and are a nice filler in
                                                      the beds with spring bulbs.

                                                      I couldn't resist another lupin
                                                      shot with the evening light and
                                                      the peonies in the background.
                                                          I love this french blue color
                                                          in the garden as it gives a nice
                                                          pop of color.

 When I was looking through my
   photos for blues this one jumped
out at me.....sometimes all you
need is a pretty blue tablecloth
and some blue china amid the 

Blue six hills giant nepeta in
the background can resemble
lavender from a distance.

I painted the old ladder the same
blue as the arbors above.

                                                         A pretty combo of blue lupins,
                                                         and Thor spirea and a Wine & Roses
                         I love clematis in the garden and
                          have several varieties. This one is
   Jackmanni superbra.

        Well, I could probably keep you
              here all day singing the garden blues,
             but the sun is shining and it is time to
                 get out in the garden and see what early
    spring clean up chores I can do.

     Thanks for visiting,
