Blue July | Day 22

Throughout the month of July, Becky (Queen of the Squares) is feeling blue. Ideal for me to showcase the most dominant colour of Cornwall in all its guises.

    oh this is gorgeous . . . .is this in your garden?

    1. Heyjude says:

      No, this one is across the road. A neighbour has one in their garden though so I might help myself to some seeds… mindst you, this is the very very tall one so take up a LOT of room!

    Lovely, Jude. Fills that square very nicely. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

      Worryingly that there were no bees in the photo, it is usually covered in them.

      1. beetleypete says:

        I bought one of these, after Fraggle recommended them. x

        1. Heyjude says:

          Good idea! I have loads of bee and butterfly plants in my garden, just not so many bees this year so far. I wonder if the cold, wet June has anything to do with it?

          My cousin keeps honey bees in Essex. She tells me that half of them have died of a ‘mystery’ virus, and many others are being killed by the Asian Hornet.

          Can’t like this comment. That’s not good Pete.

          Worrying indeed. But a hot summer might help.

    Lovely, Jude…but is it blue?!!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Lavender blue? From a distance it definitely looks blue, close-up you see more of the pink and lilac shades. Becky was OK with it though, and it is at least square 🟦🟪😁

      1. Sue says:

        Oh, I wasn’t having a go! Lavender blue will do!

        1. Heyjude says:

          I didn’t think you were, but I also thought I was pushing it a bit with the colour 😀

    Or bluebottles? 😆😆 How’s the young un doing?

    1. Heyjude says:

      No flies on this one! He’s doing much better. Hopes to be out – again – on Thursday.

      1. restlessjo says:

        That’s great! Happy to be able to say ‘told you so’ 🙂 🙂

  5. Definitely blue(ish)! Having a quick gallop through to catch up.

  6. Lignum Draco says:

    That’s beautiful. I was going to ask, but I see it’s not from your own garden. Anything we do to help the bees and butterflies is a good thing.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Have you seen these plants? They grow very tall! There are smaller versions that would suit my garden better.

  7. Jane Lurie says:

    Gorgeous hues, Jude. I love your composition with the leaves. 🙂
