So much blue...

I have a bunch of blue flowers blooming right now.  Here are most of them.  The first one is a bulb that I dug out of a vacant neighboring yard several years ago.  If you look closely, there is an aphid on one of the blooms.  (Already???)

"Forget-me-nots."  These have the tiniest flowers and  I think they are adorable.  You don't forget them for a couple of reasons:  they are so charming and they reseed themselves.

Veronica "Georgia Blue."

A whole clump of Veronica "Georgia Blue."

Rosemary "Tuscan Blue."  "Tuscan Blue" can get to be six feet tall!  This one is about two-and-a-half feet tall, so it has a ways to go.

Blue Phlox.  I'm sorry I can't remember its botanical name at the moment and I am too lazy to look it up.  Oh, and it's fragrant as well as beautiful.

Ajuga "Chocolate Chip."  Yum!!!

Have a beautiful day!

Hi Ruth! Your blues are so beautiful! Thanks so much for posting pictures of them! I love the impact of the whole patch of Veronica and all the Ajuga. The Ajuga is especially gorgeous! I'll have to find some for my garden! I planted some blue "woodland phlox" last summer (from the clearance shelf at a big box store) and it was wonderfully fragrant. Unfortunately it didn't survive, but maybe I will be able to find some this year and try again. I am so looking forward to more of your blog posts and seeing more of your gorgeous garden!
