Simple Blue Farm Flowers

Around the farmhouse last week...
I saw blue all around me.

I saw some faithful friends again, so happy to see them.

And I thought about how they just quietly show up and put on quite a show.

Shy little Columbines bow their pretty little heads.

Irises on the fence row..
forgotten behind a pile of old rocks,
yet I find them
dutifully blooming every spring...
all with no care or attention,
just drinking up the rain,
and reaching to the sun,
they're willing to show us their colors.

Phlox growing wild...
sprinkled from a can almost twenty years ago,
the Phlox were the prolific ones who made it through,
to accent the old fence every May and early June
with a profusion of their tall blue blooms, waving hello in the wind.

your blues are so peaceful. I love the columbine anyway, but this blue one is stunning. Thanks for sharing your blue walk

Ahhh, the flowers of spring. Your pictures are beautiful. I've got an Iris behind the pool fence that we don't bother to much with and it is just blooming it's heart out.

Loved your June Bug post. So glad I stopped by.
