    So sweet, both of them. I assume these are growing at your home, outdoors, so things are looking up & up.

  2. Jim R says:

    What are those little blue ones? Very pretty.

  3. Judie Sigdel says:

    These flowers are so lovely. Looking at them makes me feel more relaxed. ❤

  4. Widdershins says:

    The big blue flower seems rather proud of the little blue ones! 😀

    I thought at first that the small blue flowers were Forget-me-not(s), but I’m guessing it is some sort of a creeper??? I love blue flowers.

      Brunnera macrophylla – Siberian Bugloss…Another common name is Chinese Forget-me-not, so you’re right, Maureen. However, true Forget-me-nots are of the genus Myosotis. It isn’t a ground cover, per se, but forms a clump, spreading slowly. Mine isn’t in the the happiest spot, but it looks pretty good this year!

    So dainty. I just looked up Brunnera ‘Jack Frost’….in 2012 it was named Perennial of the year!

  9. Lovely combination of colours and textures!

    Beautiful colours. And yes I thought blue one looked forget-me-not like, though I have read the comments so know what it is now!

    I now have brunnera in the garden – so loved the blue

  12. Kris P says:

    So pretty! I wish I could grow them!

  13. Forget-me-nots are one of my favorite flowers. I think the birds have been “planting” them in the backyard.

    Such a beautiful blue!

    Such a dainty, petite dance of blue. Love your new epimedium header, too.
