Two Blues for Two Mondays

I'm joining Blue Monday over at Smiling Sally with two blues from the garden.

Those same two blues are the basis of my post for Mosaic Monday over at Little Red House.

Come join these two great parties.

Two blues from my garden this week.



Love-In-A-Mist ( Nigella damascena ) is a well known member of the Ranunculaceae family.


The one pictured here is the popular cultivar 'Miss Jekyll'


 Puya alpestris is a less well known member of the Bromeliaceae family.
You can see more images of the Puya on my garden blog
Happy Mondays!

  18. Thank you all for coming by for the Two Mondays!

    I always have a hard time finding a "blue" topic, but this week I think I hit the jackpot! I do so love both of these blues that are so very different from each other.

    Hope to see you all again very soon here on TLRT.
