Colour My Garden: Blue & Purple

I don't have any particular color scheme in our garden. Our garden is totally a plantsman garden. No design. No rhyme. No scheme. There are plants scattered through the area. I love to walk the garden and see the different colors and patterns.

Last week, Yellow was dominant color. Lots of interesting plants. This week the blue and fuchsia are coming on. Let's look at a few of the blues in bloom right now.

What a GORGEOUS cat!!!

That is so cool that you collected seed at the Roman Forum. Love your kitty!

I love your garden color posts! You grow so many beautiful and unusual things. This time I especially like the two pretty geraniums. And the spectacular cat!

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Marta, beautiful photos! How wonderful to have a beautiful and colorful garden of flowers. And your garden Kitty is beautiful too! :)

Love your posts about your garden - and your cat! I am a flower gardener as well so it's nice to see some of your flowers and different (and not soo different) varities. We must be in similar zones - different coasts! As Rebecca (of Rebecca's Garden) used to say "get those hands dirty"! menehune

I never thought of collecting seeds on my travels. What a cool souvenir, and free!

I'd love to have a garden kitty as lovable as yours. :)
