Blue Flowers

These flowers are blue, aren't they? Some will argue that they are lavender or periwinkle, but I think they are closer to blue. Needless to say, they are gorgeous flowers!

I think I saw them at a park some times last year, and at that moment I didn't know that there was a meme called Blue Monday. Well, I didn't know any meme at all.


These flowers were very small, and in order to take a great close-up, I ended up with many photos. Putting them in a collage is the best way to show them off altogether.


Here is a close-up and if anyone know what this flower is called, please do tell. I love learning flower names, even if I can't remember them all.


What could be better on a flower than water drops? I find it very challenging to capture perfect water drops, and still trying to do so whenever I have an opportunity.

  2. Great shots! Looks like a hardy geranium of some kind. The flowers on the garden variety are reasonably large, about an inch and a half across? But some of the wild ones are really small, perhaps not even a centimetre. Pretty though, aren't they?

  24. Great photos Icy, they are a Cranesbill Geranium. A wonderful perennial that comes in a variety of colors.

    I have one on my patio and the bees and bee flies love it. Many of my summer bee fly photos were with the Cranesbil.
