"Blue"

"Blue"
(Click to enlarge each picture!)

Old Man Winter and another snow storm have been leaving some of us feeling very "blue" lately. And those of us who garden can't wait for warm, Spring days.


On a happier blue note, today's post is being brought to you by that gorgeous color; and, I hope that blue has brightened your day. (These pictures were taken at the NJ Botanical Garden at Skylands.)


May you have a colorful day!

Thank you for showing off your beautiful photographs, I just flowers in shades of blue, and yeahhhhhhh we have sunshine today, but it's still far from Spring.

Blue flowers! What a beautiful sight. I also love blue flowers so much, dear Terri. Blue flowers combined with pink roses. I wish, if it were only so far. Here we still have permafrost. Snowfall again and again. Smooth roads and road salt has become very scarce. I will finally spring and summer look like to your beautiful pictures.

This is beautiful Terri! Just the right photos to fight off those "Winter blues" for sure! I have loads of Hydrangeas in my garden and they are my favorites, although right now I can't even find them under all the snow!
