Its an annual thing

Two of my favorite summer colors: yellow and blue. This buttery yellow rose bush is reminiscent of those on Birch Street in my neighborhood growing up and a new find below, a midnight blue Salvia. Finding a blue annual to plant always makes me smile.
Summer's on its way in Minnesota! For free smile, check out more summertime at Today's Flowers here.

Blue salvias are gorgeous, aren't they?! I thought about buying one this weekend, but I don't have a good spot for it.

My friend and I have been looking for blue flowers. Now I have another one to find!

Yellow roses are beautiful. This could also fit for the mellow yellow photo theme. :-)

Beautiful photos, thanks for sharing and thank you for visiting my blog, your comment was appreciated.

Nifty photo series today ... love the yellow roses. Methinks I may need to seek out one for MY garden ... perhaps a bit paler in color. Thanks for dropping by Happily Retired Gal today.

I like "Peacock Blue" as a name for a blog. Are you a jazz fan? I saw your Duke Ellington quote on blues.

Those are two complimentary plants you've got there. I planted a few blue salvias this year. They're tiny right now.

I just saw your Balzac quote now! Excellent.

Your salvia is a little different to ours in Australia!

Good to have you visit to my flowers from my temporary NY abode...!
