Firing a broadside of... BLUE





Tuesday is the MakroTex Challenge day at Susanna's blog Pieni Lintu. This week's theme is "Blue", and I started my preparation well on time. First I scurried around in hunt for something blue at home...

As usual, most of my photos are not macros, but with some flower photos - at the bottom of this post - I participate also in Laura's beautiful I Heart Macro Challenge at her blog Shine the Divine.


















A  blue post is not complete without some blue flowers and photos of a blue sky. Since there are no blue flowers yet and the blue sky has been a rarity, I have chosen some old photos.



















The flowers of Campanula rotundifolia and Aquilegia vulgaris are blue, even though they may look purplish in the photos below:

Have a lovely new week!

  13. My, I love your cobalt blue teapot Sara and the lupin is close to matching it. I like columbines in the garden, a quaint cottage plant and I have some purple/blue ones too but recently saw the prettiest soft pink on a fellow blogging sister's post. I'm hoping she will share some seeds. Beautiful blue skies this week.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.
