There are plenty of purple flowers in my garden, but very few true blues. I’m eager for the Endless Summer hydrangea to go into full bloom, but right now, the tips of the petals are turning blue and there’s a delicate beauty about the plant.
The delphinium is showing true blue.
But by far the blue I most like to see in the garden is this:
There won’t be an abundant crop this year. The drought early in the spring stressed the plants, and then someone (not the chipmunk who is the usual culprit) has not been waiting for ripe berries, but has already stripped most of the branches bare. I’m hoping that real blueberry farmers are having a better year. I’ll find a pick-your-own farm and fill baskets with blues.
