AM I BLUE?


Not really.
I don't know the name of this torch like flower but it is beginning to bloom everywhere in our City now. The blue is much more intense than some years. I thought you might like a bit of Spring today.

Sorry this didn't upload as sharp and blue as my original shot.

Have a great Sunday and it won't be BLUE MONDAY.

Blue enough I'd say.
I don't know who said that there were hardly any blue flowers... here's proof to the contrary!

It's a gorgeous flower, but I have no idea what it is (even after googling for a while). Thanks for the spring when it is very cold and white here in MI!

You have a great eye for the photographable! (Is that a real word?) Lovely unusual flower, it must be a species of cactus, wonderful deep blue.
