Spring in "blue"m

I'm on a bit of a collage-making kick right now. I'll be sharing several with you over the next few days. First, my ode to all things blue this spring...




Featured in this collage: Eastern Bluebird, Bluets (wildflower) and Lithodora "Grace Ward" (perennial for the flower garden)

...very pretty! What do you use to make your collages?

Beautiful Heather!! What brilliant colors!!

Heather said...

Kelly - Thanks. I use a free program from Google called Picasa to make the collages. It looks like it's still in the beta stage for Mac, though.

Ginnymo - Thank you. We see very few blue wildflowers around here, so I have to catch them while I can!

Hi Heather! What is it about the color blue? I'm currently in love with it. I used to be a green girl, and still am, but blue's got me hooked right now. LUV the collage!

Heather said...

Hi Meg! Blue is my current favorite, too... has been for a long time, actually. I went through a purple phase in my teen years, but blue's the best! Stay tuned for more flowers!

Heather I love the blue collage. Good luck at the "Shoot the Hill's"
contest. I am not participating but it looks like a good weekend weather wise to take photos. I hope you post some of your pictures on your blog.

Beautiful blue collage. Well done Heather (& Picassa!)
I tried growing Lithodora a few years back but for some reason it didn't survive for long.

Kelly said...

...thanks Heather. I'll have to look at it. Hopefully they have a full release for Mac soon!

Heather said...

Lona - Thank you! Yes, the weather does look like it will be great for picture-taking this weekend. I will be sure to post some of the resulting photos!

Frank - Glad you enjoyed it. I hope the Lithodora will do well in our garden. I just keep trying until something grows for more than one season!

Heather, do you like the Grace Ward Lithodora? I have thought of planting some myself. It looks gorgeous in your photos!

Heather said...

Kathie - So far I do like the Grace Ward, but I haven't actually planted it in the ground yet, so we'll see. It says it's an evergreen, so I'll really be interested to see how it overwinters. Also, I'm a little worried it won't get as much sun as it might like once the trees leaf out. I'll let you know in a couple of months!
