Blue Phase

Even though blue is difficult to come by in the garden. This time of year there are quite a few blues. From the sky outside
to my blue sofa inside,
and all the blues in between
Blue Grape Hyacinths  
Chindoxia
and the perfectly named for this time of year, Windflowers though small bring the sky close to the ground for us to admire.
I am excited about all the blues and with great anticipation I am looking at blue pots that will have some complimentary fillers. 
Like Jessica, visit here,  I have some blue on me since I turned my green potting bench into the Blue Tang potting bench.
I am now ready to get those blue pots filled  and continue through my Blue Phase. 
Are you going through a color phase? If so what color has your wheels turning?

Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - March 2016

I am not going to apologize for sun soaked photos today. It has been so cloudy and rainy the past week. Today is our first day of sunshine in some time. It is also the warmest day of the year so far, warm and windy I must say.
 I have a long list of blooms. I can well remember March of 2012 when we had this same heat wave that brought on many blooms.
 This bouquet of daffodil/narcissus are what are blooming now. The poor crocus have taken a beating this spring with all the rain. There are still several in bloom though
 I will leave you with this fresh freckled-face hellebore along with a wish for your spring to be so warm and bloom full.
For more blooms from all over the world go to Carols May Dreams Gardens.
The rest of my blooms:
Magnolia, Forsythia, Pussywillow,Spring beauties, Witch Hazels, Daffodils/Narcissus, Crocus, Hyacinth, Hellebores, Wind Flowers, Pulmonaria, Lemon Tree, Pansies.
