These (not mine) bluey-blue hydrangeas are amazingly beautiful.

So is this dogwood (also not mine).

But my own very rosy red hydrangea gift is special and belongs to me!

Tugboat Man Update

There are only a few blues in my garden — I wish I could successfully grow hydrangeas, but I think the soil would need a major overhaul.

I found these blues on my morning tour (to see if any more sick squirrels came to visit.)

Lily of the Nile, also known as Agapanthus…
against a backdrop of neon-pink Sweetpea Bush.

An artichoke that didn’t get picked in time to eat.

Lots of unpicked artichokes…see what the captain missed?

The only other blue is the flower from Ajuga, a ground cover.
