If you’d asked me if I had many blue flowers in my summer garden, I would have said ‘no’. But turns out I would have been wrong. As borne out by this blue Clematis, above. The blue-lavender Clematis on the right, below. And the blue Salvia on the left. Morning Glories get in on the act, and this one is lovely. Blue Salvia will soon get crowded out by Margaritas… But right now it’s holding its own. Blue and yellow make a refreshing mix in the garden. And — honestly — this Clematis below is a blue-lavender. But compared to the sky, it’s positively pink.
Except for this other blue Clematis, which has somehow risen above the pink one and is holding court. While, just below them both, this flower – whose name I’ve never learned – blooms all summer. Do you know what it is? Almost a Forget-Me-Not, but I don’t know what it is or where it came from.
It’s a far more vivid blue than the photo shows.
