  1. I was think “purples” not blues – but they are all lovely!

  2. I love how you’ve grouped the images and heightened the blueness with the border. Nice presentation — to say nothing of the flowers! Happy GBBD.

  3. Beautiful! Very soothing and cooling on these hot, humid days.

  4. I love all of the blues/purples!

  13. Wow, you weren’t kidding–you have a TON of beautiful blues and purples! (Only one of which I have–the ‘Black & Blue’ salvia–but mine isn’t in bloom right now. I just planted it recently, and pinched all of the blooms back so it would settle in a little easier.)

    Loved the post–happy Bloom Day! 🙂

  14. Your garden is lovely! Happy Bloom Day!

  15. How exciting! The website looks great – I will have to check it out on Friday! I’m enjoying your GBBD blooms as well.

  16. true blues are always difficult to find in the garden – but all yours are beautiful. I’ll check out the new website tomorrow.

  17. Oooo! I love purples and blues! Everytime I look over my bunch of pictures for GBBD I realize that because I too have so many!

  18. This purple collage is well done! I love it!
