Red, White and Blue 2008

Last 4th of July I had a nice, unplanned display of red, white and blue flowers , but this year the red Monarda didn't return. So I decided to take a stroll around the garden to see if I could come up with another spontaneous grouping of red, white and blue. This is the best I could do....


Okay, so I know the Salvia is more purple than blue, and the Maltese Cross has a bit of an orange hue, but the cute little button flowers of Feverfew 'Virgo' are definitely white. :-)

See yesterday's post for a red Zinnia that looks like a burst of fireworks.

Have a great Fourth of July!

I think for an unplanned display for the 4th that those colors are close enough. It's still a nice display.

Looks Fourth of Julyish to me! They are beautiful. I meant to drop by and wish you a Happy Fourth but I got sidetracked with all the preparations for our party.

I got it working. It wasn't until you posted the last comment on my blog that I realized that my feed reader wasn't alerting me to your posts.

I tried re-entering you and at first it didn't seem to work. But now it is.

Your garden is always lovely.

Those little white buttons are darling! I think the others are close enough too, my dear. By the by, I think I'm finding Kiss Me Over the Garden Gates everywhere; is that possible??

Me -I switched to Feedburner for my feed, so guess that is what happened.
Glad you found me again!

Cat - Yes, KMOTGG can re-seed! You had a big healthy plant, so probably dropped a lot of seed.

I think it works really well - the Maltese Cross looks stunning with the Salvia and the Feverfew blooms add to it!

I would definitely think 4th of July when looking at this vignette.
