My first 78 record was Blue on Blue when I was a teenager. I was never really fond of the song, but will never forget the title. Bobby Vinton was singing a song about having the blues. And this post is about the blues, but in my garden, inspired by Kiki at Awake with Charm and Spirit.
First a huge thank you to two wonderful bloggers who have given me the best blog award.
I received it from Noelle at Plants Tips and Guidelines for the Desert Garden and from The Violet Fern. Am I lucky or what. I am a great fan of both blogs. Do go and visit them. I love so many blogs that I will defer to others to list the best blogs. They've done such a good job.
Now for the blue in the garden. I have a variety of flowers and other garden structures in the garden that are blue. I'll start with the plants first.
Blue Glory Bower
Some of favorites are blue gray, like the succulents.
Now into the things non-plant. Lots of blue pots, one of which if pictured below.

In general, I love blue, so have to hold myself back so that I do not paint all the wicker chairs blue. I'm due to repaint some of my flower pots blue. I really enjoy blue as an accent and flower in my garden.
