The Colour Blue
I'm not sure why the colour blue is associated with feeling miserable! Personally, when I am down, its more a dark grey! But when I took the dog out this morning, the sky was a beautiful blue, white clouds racing across, and I came across so many lovely blue things. Not in the least miserable making!
The Park gardeners have planted some beds with a gorgeous deep blue hyacinth. Not the common pale blue, but a truly deep blue. Alternate beds have cream hyacinths in.
With colourful primulas between the hyacinths, including these lovely blue ones with a yellow centre.
Back at home, we have a lot of grape hyacinths, muscari along the little trough running the length of the patio. They are a zinging colour at this time of the year!
There is also a little sedum, whose "flowers" are the palest blue.
We have a big clump of lungwort, pulmonaria, down by the pond. Trying to photograph the whole doesn 't really work.....
....but a close up helps show them of!
Indoors, I love the deep blue of one of our sofa cusions....
...a a favourite little jug.
And lastly, a much-loved and much worn velvet scarf!
All very cheerful blues!
