Blue Monday!

It's Blue Monday and a collage of blue flowers are just the perfect thing to cheer us up on a blah Monday!

Can you tell that I am oh so ready to start planting flowers? So far, I have Violas waiting to be planted, and several hydrangeas to be moved from their pots. I pulled weeds out of one of the flower beds last week, then it started raining again. I'm going to the nursery when the weather clears up!

The collage is made up of some of my favorite blue flowers on Flickr.



Sally, thank you for hosting your weekly Blue Monday event. It's always a pleasure to visit the other participants to check out their blue posts. You can see the list of other participants by clicking on

Love the blue flowers. They make me think of spring :0). While we don't really experience a true change of season...Spring here is wonderful.
Hmm, are those Kinkade's I see in your banner. Lovely! I have a few of my own. His paintings are so serene and calming.

Compared to other colors, there are so few blues in flowers. I think that's what makes these so special. Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

Pretty blues! I am so ready for spring and a bit warmer weather! Spring is one of my favorite seasons, the other is Fall! I'm not a too hot or too cold fan.

Heidi Pocketbook said...

What lovely blue flowers. I can hardly wait until it's warm enough here to see *real* flowers and start planting.

Thanks for stopping by to see me--hope you have a great Monday☺

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Diane, your blue and pink flower collages are so pretty! They have me longing for spring, it's coming! I have some plants budding out and I'm so exited!

I was at Wal-Mart yesterday and thought about your yummy mini bundt cakes, but didn't know which frosting to get(should have written it down). I'll let you know when I make them, they still sound delicious! Your dinner with the asparagus and mango chicken sausage sounds great too. Chase loves asparagus so I know he will like this. Keep those recipes coming!! Kristen

Hi Diane!! The package came!!! I have posted them! Come and see!! They are gorgeous!! Thanks so much!!! hugs...Debbie

Mimi said...

Gorgeous blue Monday on my Tuesday morning! I lost 45 pounds last year and still want to lose more. I think my standstill is because I haven't been diligent enough tracking what I eat. Every now and then I slip something between my lips that never, ever should have been there.

Tomarie said...

Diane,
I can't thank you ENOUGH for all the wonderful comments you made on my postings! I truly appreciate it!!
I'm going to add you to my blogroll! Your collages are beautiful! Thank you again for visiting! L~

Tomarie said...

Diane, I don't know what's going on with my guestbook, but I think I just accidently deleted you!! Sorry about that! :-)
When you have time...could you swing back by and sign it again? I would sure appreciate it. I'm new at this and the site seems to be down right now too.
Thanks...and thanks again for all the wonderful comments you left on each post!! L~
