True Blue...

True blue flowers
are hard to come by...

(click photos to enlarge)

That becomes even more obvious
when they are placed

Blue Delphinium paired with Blue Sea Holly,
come the closest...

Cupids Dart..
Is a beauty,  but blue?

A Lace Cap Hydrangea bloom...
looks so blue in the garden paired with pink :-)

Hi Bella Sweetie...
Beautiful share this evening. I too am such a sucker for a Blue Mason Jar. I have many of them, some old, some newer. Just love all the sizes and together they always brighten any corner.

Thanks for the gorgeous share. Who would have thought that there were so many shades of blue?

Have a beautiful week sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Hello there sweet Bella!

This colour story of blue, in all of it's lovely hues is just so refreshingly pretty! It speaks so eloquently of the season!..,

Also dear Bella, your very lovely post from last week's tea was so breathtakingly fresh and beautiful!..,

That image of the teacup so artfully arranged with the whisper of lacy white flowers will stay with me for a long time to come!~ What loveliness for last week's week's tea party!.., As always, I loved your every little exquisite detail !

..,(I have been out of the office taking such much needed vacation, 'R. and R.' time); yet I wanted to thank you so very much also for partaking with last week's little tea parties!..,

Thanks so much for for sharing this loveliness as well as being a precious part of our, Tuesday Tea For Two' and 'Teapot And Tea Things Tuesday'; 'Tuesday Tea Time In Blogland", experience dear lady!..,

I always love having you join us!

Cheers and hugs from Wanda Lee

Dearest Bella,

True blue is definitely hard to come by and even harder to capture it on camera without altering its 'true' color.
You did well, very nice images as usual; great idea too.

Greetings from Georgia,

You are right, Bella. Blue flowers are hard to come by. We used to have a road side flower in PA that grew wild. I don't know the name of them but they were a true cornflower blue. My father always called them "sinkers"...why? Well, I wish I had asked because now I will never know!

I think there is a delphinium that is quite a pure blue too...but even that has a hint of violet in it.

Your posts, like you, are always so lovely. I love coming here-but you already know that!>) Diana

Olga said...

Such beautiful blue bouquets. You take such great photos.

Martha said...

There aren't many real blues in the garden! But you have some beautiful bouquets and some beautiful pictures!

Hélène Glehen said...

In the nature, blue flowers are rare, real blue I mean. I remarked blue flowers are almost all the time of a blue/parm or blue/violet.
Flowers of linen are really blue.
But your bouquets look very pretty even their colors tend toward violet :o)

Patyclau said...

Very nice your bouquets, I´ve enjoy this delicated post.

Bohemian said...

The most true Blue flowers I've ever seen are a Native Desert Wildflower called Desert Bluebell... it is practically an Electric Blue, so vivid and beautiful... I think they would look amazing in a Blue tinted Mason Jar. I think I have Posted a picture of them in my Archived Posts.
