Natures Purples and Blues

Hello friends...






I hope you're not tired of seeing purple and blue yet.





I see from looking back at my last post,



It's pretty obvious I tend to gravitate toward

flowers of this color.






There's a lot of "Spring" popping up around here lately, 

and giving me Spring Fever, 

even though it's still very chilly.





These little beauties were calling out to me, and 

didn't seem to be bothered by the February chill in the air. 





Tomorrow, I'm going to the

Northwest Flower and Garden Show in Seattle.

Have you ever been?

I hear it's quite the event!



I'm doing a little crocheting today in between laundry...

guess what color of crochet thread I'm using?

:-)

Enjoy your day!

Becca

Just gorgeous...can't wait for Spring. We just got 11.5" of snow so we won't be seeing anything peek through for a few days. Hope you have fun!

Have fun at the Garden Show! Surely those irises weren't growing in your yard?

Rosie Grey said...

No, I'm not tired of seeing purple and blue! :-) Quite the contrary!! We are still covered in snow here - no sign of spring or any color at all! So I'm so happy to see the beautiful colours and flowers here! Do take your camera to the garden show - can't wait to see the photos! :-) Have a great day!

I will never be tired of purples and blues..so soothing, and cheerful at the same time.

The NWFGS is amazing...well at least it was all the years I have gone before...we used to charter a bus of gardeners such fun.

Especially when everyone smuggled the illegal plants back...lol.

The purples and blues of spring are always the pretties! How wonderful to be enjoying spring already Becca. Jealous!!!

Oh, how I love blue flowers! They don't show up very well from far away so I'm saving the bright sunflowers and those kinds of colors for down by the road (when we finally dig that garden! ;)) In the meantime, all along the house - right there where we can see it through the windows, there are shades of blue and lavender and anything that will go with those flowers! =]

These irises and the Valentine hyacinths are a refreshing balm to this winter weary heart!!! =]
