All I See Is Blue!

Love, Love, Love Blues in the Garden!
So I am in heaven this week with these irises all blooming at once at our driveway….

And blue skies here at the lake!  Heaven!!
The blue salvias are just starting to show color, so vibrant.

First time for it to bloom for me, ‘Stairway to Heaven’ Jacobs Ladder is fantastic.

I love the light blooms and variegated foliage.  I can see this used all over my garden in the future.

Mountain Bluet is an underused perennial that is lovely and blooms for a long time.  I have it several places, it reseeds lightly.

Okay, this is Nelly Moser, but she even looks a bit blue to me with these new blooms opening today.  Really?  Clematis blooming in Early April?  Unreal!

Another shot of the groundcover ‘Lithodora’.  It is so sweet and dainty sky blue.

More of my violas…. they are so cheery with little smiling faces as you come up the front walk.  All of these are from seed, I think I planted 5 different varieties in the blue and purple scheme.

These have been beautiful days to just be in the garden.
 Watching how quickly things are filling in and blooming so early! 
But the best are the irises…. Wish you could see them in person!
