Blue Monday - Blue Flowers!

It's Blue Monday! To participate:

1. Post about something blue on your blog. It can be pretty, ugly, funny, old, or new as long as it's blue. Leave a link to this blog on your post.

2. Place the Blue Monday button on the top of your post so that people can easily spot it. Place another Blue Monday button on the sidebar of your blog.

3. Mr. Linky will be up after midnight. Return here and link in with Mr. Linky by leaving your name and the Permalink to your post. To create a Permalink, click on your Blue Monday post title and copy all the stuff in the http window. It is a longer address so that people can find your post even later in the week--whenever they get a chance to visit.

4. Leave me a comment. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links. Make someone's day; leave a comment.


A non-blogger who regularly reads my blog sent me these beautiful flowers last BLUE MONDAY. Look at the BLUE! I never knew that God made such pretty BLUE blooms. Can anyone identify them for me?

The note says, "Sally, Happy Blue Monday! Love, Jane"

Thank you, Jane. What a lovely surprise!

I think blue flowers are so beautiful. I don't know what they are, but what a pretty blue they are.

How very sweet. You have a precious friend. Could the flower be a delphenium? Sp? I can't really tell.

Charlotte said...

What a nice surprise. I have no idea what the blue flowers are but they're very pretty.
Happy Blue Monday.

Anonymous said...

This is so sweet of her Sally. To receive flowers from someone you haven't met. A very nice gesture - and the flowers are beautiful!

Happy Blue! Monday!


Gemma Wiseman said...

Very pretty blue flowers! Beautiful gift! But I have no idea what they are either!

Gee said...

Hi Sally.

Those flowers are really beautiful and to get it as a surprise from someone who you havent met is another way of appreciating each other. Happy blue monday.

Drawn to The Sea said...

Hi Sally. What a pretty bouquet. I don't know what the flowers are either, but you must have smiled all day :-))

Anne Fannie said...

Hi Sally, your flowers are so pretty. I love that vibrant blue. Are those Delphinium? I enlarged the picture and I can't really tell but I have some growing in my yard, they come in dark blue, light blue, white, purple, etc. I think that's what they are but I am not sure. They have a white center just like mine.
They are very pretty, perfect for blue monday!

imjacobsmom said...

Hi Sally! What a sweet gesture. I bet those are Delphiniums. I would have them growing in my garden this summer, but the bunnies helped themselves to them. Happy Blue Monday! ~ Robyn

Barbara H. said...

How thoughtful, and how pretty. I'm not sure what they are, either. I was thinking lupine, but looked them up and they don't look like most of the pictures of it.

RobinfromCA said...

What a sweet surprise and beautiful blue flowers!

Happy Blue Monday!

Unknown said...

How Sweet! I have blue flowers today, too!

Nicole said...

Oh, that's so sweet!
Wishing you a great week :)!

Neabear said...

What a nice gesture! I am no help in identifying those blue flowers, but it looks like a couple of other bloggers are agreeing on delph---something or other. Anyway, I love the blue color on those flowers.

Happy Blue Monday!

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hello Sally...

Ohhh...what a lovely floral bouquet! Your friend is so sweet! The blue flowers are really a beautiful shade of blue...I would say that they are Delphiniums (but not sure). Thank you for sharing your sweet gift with us and for hosting Blue Monday!

Have a marvelous Monday, my friend!

Jennsmere said...

Beautiful flowers! Such a precious thing to do for we all get to enjoy them!

Thanks for posting...
Be blessed,

ItaJeff said...

Hi Sally
What a lovely blue flower. So sweet of your friend :-)
Have a nice day & happy Blue Monday


Candy said...

Flowers from friends...always leaves a sweet fragrance in the air. At first they kinda looked like bluebonnets but up close...I'm not sure what they are. Enjoy!

Becky K. said...

My first thought was delphinium but I am not sure. They are not exactly like the ones I have seen.

Beautiful, though. What a thoughtful thing for a friend to do.

Shirl said...

Hello Sally, happy blue monday. What a beautful bouquet of flowers. How sweet of your friend to send them to you. The blue flower is called a blue delphinium, the green is button mums, white roses and the rose color is alstramia (spelled wrong). Have a great week!
Bless you, Shirl

Cindy said...

So pretty, but I am not good identifying them.
Have a good day.

Now that's a meme taking on a life of its own! Niiiice.

jeanne said...

Good morning Sally, How sweet to receive such lovely flowers. Isn't it wonderful how blogging can bring so many rewards into our lives?

Barbara said...

Sally, I am not a flower expert and if I ever knew their names, I forget them.
Whatever their names, they are beautiful and what a wonderful surprise.

Happy Blue Monday,

What a sweet friend you have Sally. Your flowers are absolutely beautiful! Happy Blue Monday ♥

LV said...

Some people have a special way about them whether you know them personally or not. Sally, no doubt you are one of those people. It is obvious your blogging friends care and have a lot of respect for you. Your friend, Jane, showed hers by treating you with those lovely flowers.

Regina said...

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

This is beautiful, Sally. I don't know what it is, I just know it's pretty!

I just realized there is a lot of blue in my Dog n Suds post, so added it here. Thanks so much!!

Monica said...

Hi Sally,
You've been given wonderful Delphiniums!!
Love having them in the garden... they are delicate flowers which require much attention as they tend to be broken by wind... but they are just terrific both in the beds and indoor! I definitely recommend them.
I shared something vintage this week...
Happy Blue Monday!

Musings of A Minister said...

Beautiful! Don't you just love surprises---and friends like Jane?

Cathy said...

I too think they might be delphiniums, which I love. But I have never been able to grow them.

Lynn said...

Surprises are awesome! Rejoicing with you over this beautiful blue surprise!

KayC. said...

I love getting flowers...they make my day! Your flowers are very pretty.
