In Bloom

They are everywhere, Echiu, candicans, Pride of Madeira. Colors from a brilliant strawflower blue, to a dusky lavender. Their spires are tall. The sunlight gives them a luminous halo. The bees love them.

These are lovely! Do the butterflies like them as well? They look like something I might like, if I were a butterfly. :)

Gorgeous photo, Natalie - I love the soft halo around the blooms!

Do you keep your own bees, woman?! I will turn green with envy if you say yes. I already drool over your chickens as it is. Beautiful spring flowers; I love this pic!
