Singing The Blues

There's something special about the colour blue.
In my garden it's a fairly rare colour
so when I see it, I can't help but stop and stare.

The flowers in the first photo, a type of forget-me-not,
were given to me by my youngest son
when he was eight-years-old.
Twelve years later they continue to reseed themselves.

Every time I see their cheerful blue petals
I think of my son
and how sweet it was of him to think of me.

This blue cornflower isn't more than one inch in diameter
but its magnetic shade of blue
can catch my eye from across the yard.

My favourite shade of delphinium,
aptly named Sky Blue.

And the best shade of blue?
Nothing beats a blue sky on a hot summer's day.


  1. Blue can be found in a lot of different shades.

    I like a lot the first photograph from a small delicate flower,
    (Myosotis sylvatica) , and rye flower.


  2. Beautiful, brilliant, blue, my favourite flower colour in the garden.
    I had forget-me-nots around my hair when I got married, and delphiniums in my bouquet.

  3. How wonderful your photos are, Rosemary. The photo of Delphinium is very pretty!

  4. Your pictures are art, Rosemary! Beautiful!

  5. Rosemarie jij maakt er kunstwerken van en dat is heel knap hoor topppp !
    Groeten Annie

  6. I love blue, in the garden and in the air. A blue sky always, always puts a smile on my face.
    Your photos are pieces of art, so magical.

  7. Beautiful blooming blues. Those forget-me-nots look like the ones my mum grew in her garden.

  9. I really like blue flowers. But you're right, the most beautiful is the blue sky. * I am sad that you are no longer my "observer". Greetings.

  10. A beautiful post...I love forget-me-nots.
