Shades of Blue in the Garden! The Rarest Garden Color


I just had to share photos of these extraordinary, beautiful blue flower covered bushes that thrill our eyes from late July until frost. They are called Caryopteris or “Bluebeard”. Plus drought and deer-resistance make them perfect for adding splashes of vivid blue azure color in the rural (and urban) landscapes. The bees and butterflies just love them too!

Plus I had to include a photo of my blue-eyed Siamese cat, Coco, amidst the bed pillows where she loves to play hide and seek. She sort of looks angry in this shot, but I just woke her up for the photo, so she was kind of out of it, wondering what was going on with all the flashes! I’d probably feel the same way too!
Have a beautiful Labor Day wherever you are!
Your comments make me smile and I promise to get back to you. I may be slow at it because I get easily distracted by something brewing in the kitchen or hummingbirds in my gardens.

    I’m lamenting how so many of my flowers are going bye-bye for now.

    (wistful sigh)
