Oh, I've got the gardenin' blues!
Had to share a few blue pretties from my Picket Fence Cottage Garden and my Kitchen Garden!
We have a volunteer cornflower in the Kitchen Garden!
It started growing in February. I told Worker Bee I think that's a weed, but he suggested giving it a chance and I'm glad we did!
Isn't it a beautiful blue? Just one bloom so far, but there will be more to follow.
And off in the Picket Fence Cottage Garden (yes, I name my gardens) I've got one of my favorites - pincushion flower or scabiosa. (Love when I can remember the botanical name of plants - doesn't happen very often.)
I've had a bee in my bonnet lately to take small plates I pick up at thrift stores or estate sales and use them in my garden.
Here's my first one - a sweet little blue and white plate I put in a pot of boxwood by the front door.
I tend to get bees in my bonnet a lot! I painted many of my terra cotta pots with chalkboard paint a few summers ago and so I wrote a little note to you.
(Yes, I agree - perhaps chalkboard art is not my greatest talent.)
Thanks for buzzing by!
