I've been captivated by the "blues" in my garden lately. I must admit that several of the plants are new (the pincushions, for example), while others (the delphiniums) just keep coming back more lush and gorgeous than the year before. And my absolute favorites are the handful of deep blue pansies that I bought and put in pots to celebrate spring, long before it was "safe" to dig anything into the ground. I stare at those little blue "faces," and feel like I'm entering a realm of mysterious blue velvet. Enjoy!
