Bluesy-Greensy

As some of the spring bloomers are starting to wake up and produce their bright flowers, I can't help but appreciate the beautiful blue-green foliage at this time of year. Helichrysum, lavender and gazania all blend together with their soft hues.

Add the structural grace of an artichoke plant and the entire bed is soft and soothing before the colors of the hot pink, magenta and purple flowers take over center stage in the next month.

Beautiful blue foliage in those shots and it contrasts so well with others. I vow to add more blue this year!

Gorgeous combination with the purple flowers against silvery foliage - my favourite mixture!
