shades of blue tea…

it seems each flower that blooms in our garden becomes my ‘favorite‘…

not being fickle

it’s just that I adore

the arrival of each and every one…

I enjoy a strong connection with nature

fostered by nature Loving parents…

for which I am always grateful…

if you are interested in any of the flower names you can click on each photo and see the common name included in the title…

be sure and visit Kimmie at Art in Red Wagons for more Tea on Tuesday stops…

“In my garden there is a large place for sentiment.  My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams.  The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.”  ~Abram L. Urban

  10. I’ve always heard that blue is the rarest color in nature. You have proved everyone wrong, because these are incredible. My flowers are all gone, so I have only greenery to look at until my cosmos bloom, which should be soon, since spring has been at least a month early this year.

    Of course, I still LOVE your lovely photos, too! They are incredible, as usual.

  18. I feel the same way about our flowers, I love to go and check on them every morning to see if anything happened over night, if they started to bloom, and I do noticed my cone flowers are getting flowers now, probably due to a very hot week. I love the Nigella here, something I don’t have, thank you for the beauty. I am such a nature lover too 🙂
    Come meet Signor frog, I just posted photos.
