Monday- Blue Monday Meme

Blue flowers, a remembrance of springtime

 

Good Morning, today I’m linking up with Smiling Salley for Blue Monday.  

http://smilingsalley.blogspot.com  

Listen,closely with me.   I can hear the wind rush through the leafless trees, and the whistling sound that comes through the roof-top dryer vents.  In the midst of the winter, it’s raining here with a forecast for some flooding.  I don’t live near any rivers or streams.   Some roads may become flooded in low-lying areas.  

This photo of spring or beginning summer.  It is in my parents backyard.  That’s an old picnic bench, what do you suppose these bricks are for.  Sometimes the neighbors outdoor cat sits under there.   There are several like these lining the small side  garden.  Does anyone know the name of these blue hued flowers?  

Happy Blue Monday!

    Grace, they are called Hyacinths, they bloom in spring after the daffodils. They come in blue, pink & white & grow from bulbs. I used to have them, but sprayed this crap stuff (to kill all the dandelions) that killed my daffodils, hyacinths & anything else growing. It sucked! 10 years of plantings & EVERYTHING was gone. I called the company, they said there was a warning, I said I read the whole thing, no warning. Now I just pick out the weeds. Karen

      Karen, now that you mention it, both mom and dad planted the Easter flowers’ bulbs after the blooms finished, and rebloom every year. The camera used does not show detail, hopefully getting one soon with more capabilities.
