BLUE MONDAY: A mix with sage

Every year I buy some plants of the annual Sage :"Salvia farinacea", to put in pots or in the border together with my roses. The flowers are really blue, and they are good-smelling.

Another really blue flower is
"Nigella damas-cena", in english called
"Love-in-a-mist", and in Sweden translated from swedish: "The-virgin-in the green".It is an annual, but every year I find some new plants again in the border. The seedcapsules are also very attractive.

I pick a bunch of sages and nigellas and a tiny rose called "Baby Faraux" - a lilacblue rose - and put them together with a really blue cloth...
...and in our kithen...
...in a vase together with other blue attributes.














Have a nice week everybody!

Härliga buketter du lagar! Blå salvia tycker jag också mycket om,jag har planterat den samman med en röd salvia, vilken explotion av färger..och du, vilket läckert foto det blev av din vita bukett i kvällsljuset, woah !!

Så vakkert dette var!
Salvie og andre kryddervekster er flotte i buketter, og særlig sammen med roser.

Visst är det mysigt att plocka blommor till egna buketter...nästan som när man var liten.....

I'm not good at planting :-( Your flowers are beautiful. I like the love-in-the-mist. The name itself would tempt you to buy it! LOL

TACK för alla kommentarer/THANK'S for all comments!
Mia, jag har skaffat ny kamera, som jag experimenterar med. det här med ljus är spännande.
Ann-Charlotte, mm, man blir lite nostalgisk när man tänker tillbaka på vandringar på ängar och andra marker med liljekonvalj och vitsippsbuketter i händerna.
Fortsatt trevlig vecka på er allihopa!(Jag har semester...)/Have a nice week everyone!(I have my last week of vacation this summer)
Hälsn
