Cool Blues

Temperatures nearing 100F, one longs to see some cool colours in the garden. The blue Butterfly Pea in partial shade looks cool.
The tiny blue flowers of the Jacquemontia violacea are a welcome sight in the hot afternoons.

The sky blue Plumbago is flowering profusely all over the place.

Blue Angelonia massed in a garden in Coorg.

The blue hydrangea has always been my favourite, though these are from a garden in Coorg.
The last two photos from Coorg were taken by my friend Viji.


  1. Oh! your garden flowers are sooo beautiful!!!!

  2. Your blue flowers are very soothing. I adore hydrangea but it is too hot to grow them in my garden, even though few people have managed to grow them elsewhere on the island.

  3. Thank you, Malar.
    Helen, I too find it difficult to grow hydrangeas. These were from Coorg, which is a much cooler olace. Have a wonderful summer!

  4. Views of the Nature are really beautiful.
    My hands seem to reach there.

    Your photography is very splendid.

    I thank for your always admiring my calligraphy.

    From the Far East.
    Best regards.
