I do not discriminate when it comes to color in the garden. I plant pinks, reds, yellows, blues, purples, oranges, whites, and foliage of every color and texture. But, nothing seems to take my breath away like the blues.

I’ve got a variety of blues in the garden – creeping phlox, Johnson’s Blue geranium, Baptisia Australis, Cornflower, catmint, salvia, lupines, bearded Iris, and Siberian iris. Many of them are on the west hill, and when I come down the walk from the garage to the front of the house, the sea of blue gets me every time! So, I guess even though I plant all colors, I’d have to say that the blues are my favorite. No other color affects me like the blues.
I like to have bouquets from the garden – for myself and to take with me when I visit people during the growing season. I keep a variety of inexpensive vases and a collection of ribbon. Here’s a blue bouquet I made the other night to take to a walleye and wine evening with some friends.
Do you have a favorite color in the garden? Or, do you plant and appreciate all colors equally?
