One of my favourite colours in Spring are the Spring blues. Of course, sometimes it’s hard to tell if a flower is blue or a purple blue, and it’s not always the easiest colour to photograph. However, here are a few that have been giving me joy in the last couple of weeks.
Anemone blanda blue-flowered
Here it is mixed in a pot with Narcissi and Alliums.
Omphalodes cappadocica ‘Cherry Ingram’
Alpine, Veronica whitleyi
Another alpine, Lithodora diffusa ‘Heavenly Blue’
Which Spring blue’s do you love in your garden?

Beautiful. Not sure how many spring blues we have. Will have to check when Spring comes here in Australia. You certainly have a number of flowers I've not seen before. Lovely.
I remember when I first moved to the UK from Melbourne that I was astonished by the blues in Spring. However, I don't know if this is because you don't find many in Oz in Spring, or if it's because I wasn't a gardener in Oz so never noticed plants at all!
I have the same plants and love the v=blue too. This year I grew some forget me nots and they have been beautiful.
I forgot about forget-me-nots – I love those too. Despite it being very common, it never fails to delight me.
