It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

Welcome!Today it's all about blue. No, I'm not blue, but my blooms are! These plants are not blooming now but they all bloomed earlier in the season.
Blue spiderwort.
I love this plant in bud with all the hanging bunches of buds.

This is a grass with these tiny blue flowers on the ends.
Short blue bell flowers.
I'm not sure what this plant is. I bought it because I love the dark green with the burgundy edging. The only thing I don't like is the blue flowers. For some reason they don't seem to go with the leaves.
Sea holly.
Globe thistle.
Gentiana Septemfida, Summer gentian. This is a low growing plant. I love the intense blue and the striped buds. There is no question about this being a blue plant!
Do you still have blooms or are you digging into the archives? Show me what you got! Just add your name and permalink to Mr Linky and add a link to this post on yours. I hope you enjoyed the 'blues'!

Beautiful flowers!

I love blue flowers--my favorite, probably because we have few to none here in the desert. Some things are a blue/violet, but no true blue. Morning Glories are against the law, but if they weren't I've have a yard full of 'Heavenly Blue'.

They say the grass is always greener--but in this case, bluer!
