Blues in the pleasure grounds

This morning showed us the missing grape hyacinths. We also have our first delphiniums open, along with many new blue Dutch irises. The blue hyacinths are nearing their end, but are still here. The same is true of blue anemone blanda and blue anemone de Caen. We've been losing too many flowers to theft and we prefer to see them when we're outdoors and from the windows, so we seldom bring any into the house. That's why Arnofsky (Texas Specialty Cut Flowers) exists and sells flowers at the Farm to Market Grocery on South Congress. The flowers are extremely fresh, so they last well, and the prices are more than fair for what is there, the kinds of blooms that are seldom seen in commerce.
