Means being tender,sensitive,sentimental.
The color blue signifies tenderness,poetry~
I love blue flowers..des fleurs bleues..just not dyed blue flowers..never..
only flowers that bloom blue in the garden~
I tend to have a mainly blue/lavender garden the last week of May first week of June~with bits of yellow Irises and peonies showing up:)
The Baptisia is up..the first Irises..so glad I staked some..Sat. we had some hard rain fall..and thunder..so..thunderstorms..the Korean Lilacs..the Alliums~the Pansies are still going strong..
Johnson's Blue Geraniums..
The Ajuga is up..my neighbor's Ajuga..in the back..is in front of a bench and has become invasive..
You know what?
Looked like a postcard.
Some invasives ..in certain spots..are POETRY:)
I had been Pinning Mr McGregor's Garden..because of our small,new "potager"~
Too anxious to wait for blue felt as I have none left between the Christmas felt decorations and the dolls..
I tore off a pocket on some of my gardening jeans and made a wee jacket and felt shoes..Peter's clothes ..that Mr McGregor used for a "scarecrow" I have one now..and will make more..felt though...
I love everything Beatrix Potter..
Imagine my delight in finding seed packets..from..: Strangers And Pilgrims On Earth~
They are adorable!
I only wished I owned a laminator..I covered it in plastic:)
They are so so cute.
Thank you Jes~
We did have sunny bright periods Saturday..but such high winds..it was really a sign that the skies would open..but the BBQ was ready..it had been 100F in that exact area..just a little earlier..and then the rain cooled it off..
Jacques had started the BBQ while the sky was blue;)
God bless him..really..
No wonder I never learned to light the BBQ.
Last time I made Ricardo's Rhubarb cake..was in 2009..my daughter had found the recipe..I have shared it here before..but the day we went to meet Grizzly..Wednesday..she had made one..and Jacques enjoyed it again..so I made it again;)
You can never go wrong with Ricardo.
That daughter..Mylène..and Noah..and Grizzly came for lunch..♥so it was fitting..
In the afternoon.. Grizzly and Ray met;)
The 2 doggie cousins like each other.
It's almost 6PM Sunday..tomorrow is June 1rst.
