Blue Tuesday


Blue and purple today!

The last of the lavender roses.

Violas everywhere

New clematis Mrs N Thompson is a summer bloomer! Yay!

Blueberries are ripening!

The black mondo grass is blooming.

….and I’ve already forgotten what this is! Oh wait, I found the empty pot. Isotoma or blue star creeper. I’ve put it under my massive white rose, as the grass doesn’t like to grow there.

  1. ooo man, love the Clematis! And the ornamental grass. As you know I’ll roll over and fetch for blue flowers.

    I used to have blue alliums left over from the last owner, but they petered out. I’d be putting up photos of what I HAVE got but it is 90+ degrees everyday and locker room humid out; I’m cowering and not ashamed to admit it. I have brambles growing up through my rhododendrons and I JUST CAN’T MAKE MYSELF CARE.

    • Yep, I was saving the blue and purple ones just for you! The iso-whatever really looks more blue in person. I hope it spreads!
      I wish I had some of your heat, it depresses me that August here is the beginning of Autumn. It’s my birthday tomorrow and man, it was always so great as a kid, not having to have it during the school year and it was so nice outside…unfortunately this is the first year since I started this job I have to be at work on my b’day. I’m not amused. Boss better bring me a plant and leave the cake for someone else!

        • I would eat it if it was made for purpose – but I’ll get some supermarket crap or horrid Irish cookies that taste of sawdust. And the song, oh god not the song. I hate it so much.not even Marilyn made it sound good.

            • PERFECT!

              I did get the dry cake, and four candles (told them they shoulda broke another one in half if we were doing decades). Thankfully no singing. I do so prefer to work with men. They don’t want to effing well sing, either.

  2. Wow, Awesome. The first two pictures look so smooth and the colors stand out so , they could be one of Emily’s cakes. Grand. Be well . Hugs

Thoughts? Gardening tips? Cocktail recipes? Don't just like and leave, please - I can talk for Ireland and would love to prove it!
