Blue Monday

Joining in with just a few pictures for Blue Monday with Smiling Sally.

These pretty little delicate blue/purplish flowers are coming up among our ground cover. Does anyone know what they are?

These are our bluebonnets with a few Indian paintbrush scattered among them. We saw a whole field of bluebonnets, and from the road, it looked like a lake had cropped up along the road.


We have a very busy week ahead, and the showings are keeping us out of the house quite a bit along with the dogs, who of course can't be here when the prospective buyers are coming through. Life is good!

Wrap up on the Escape story tomorrow, Tuesday. Check back in for the finale!

Nice to see the flowers in the field, so different from the one's we see here.

Lovely blue bonnets and contrasted pink flowers. Very spring-like, Linda Kay.

The blue flowers do look good, I bet it's very picturesque in reality. Hope you sell the house quickly...

Those other flowers may be hyacinths. Do they have a strong fragrance?

TexWisGirl said...

i hate when i can't i.d. a flower. :) couldn't help you on that one - the site i use didn't show it (that i could see).

we have a pasture a couple of places over that looks like a lake right now. it's beautiful.

Mike said...

Could the unknown flowers be blue bells?

Gail said...

Beautiful blues.

Hi Linda Kay,

Nothing makes me smile more than Spring flowers popping up - and these are beautiful examples. Thanks so much for posting them.

Have a great day, Linda!

Lovely!

Also, another vote for Bluebell.

(Hyacinthoides × massartiana is a hybrid species produced by crosses between the common bluebell, H. non-scripta and the Spanish bluebell, H. hispanica.)

Flowers on the stalk look right, and the spiky leaves...

The photos are just beautiful! We have a carpet of nothing but brown, dead grass thus far. But as I always say, 'May is coming!' :-)

Those first flowers look like bell flowers to me. Whatever they are, they are certainly lovely. I also love the little bluebonnets! Always my pleasure to stop by and say hello.

Hi Linda Kay, I adore the Texas blue bonnets. It is amazing how they grow wild in the fields. So pretty.

Good luck with the sale of your house.

I wish I could see those bluebonnet covered hills myself. It must be so lovely. Perhaps one day... who knows?

That first flower looks like a hyacinth to me...and I love the blue bonnets!

Mascha said...

The first flowers in German are called Hasenglöckchen (little bunny bells), in one family with Hyacinths
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hasengl%C3%B6ckchen.

I will tomorrow not blogging, have clearing and renewing works in the barn and many things in the garden, so I make little less blogposts now and I'm not in all memes like usual...

Have a great time

Rebecca said...

We call them blue bells and I love seeing them in gardens and along the road. Your blues are lovely.
