There are some blues in the garden -- this flower pot that is now full of marigolds under the pergola. It came with a hydrangea that was a remembrance for Jim's Mom. The hydrangea has been planted in the garden and the pot of marigolds now brings us joy!
And although a bit blurry, we had a visitor this weekend in the garden -- an indigo bunting
bringing it's bright blue to rival the blues of the Jays in the garden at Linderhof. They've been here before and we enjoy their visits, although the last time the visit was brief. We hope that they will stay longer this time around.
For dinner, we roasted some cherry tomatoes and zucchini. Tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper and herbes de provence. It's easy and a great accompaniment to any grilled or roasted meat. And it makes the supermarket tomatoes flavorful!
It's Monday which means that it's Blue Monday so join Smiling Sally to see what other blues there are this Monday! On the prairie, we're anxious for some blue skies -- the past week or so we've had too many clouds and too much rain!
I would love to see that blue bird in my garden! I've never seen an Indigo Bunting - how pretty it must have been in person.
The blue sundial is fantastic. Your garden looks lovely. I don't get blue birds too often, they are gorgeous.
your garden looks lovely, hello martha I just found your blog I used to read it all the time when I visited contessa kitchen, I need to make time to visit them again..
Martha, how beautiful! And you're so right- roasting makes any vegetable so much tastier!
Sending some sunshine your direction!
An indigo bunting - I love that name and will now have to go and look up that bird.
Indigo buntings are so gorgeous. We never see them in town, but have some that live about the farm. I typically see them when the thistles start having seeds. Your post reminded me about Blue Monday and I decided to participate, too.
I love the brilliant blue of that bird! Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.
Your garden is lovely. I like that pergola and have been wanting to plant a lace cap hydrangea in our garden.
Those roasted veggies look yummy.
Isn't it wonderful to catch a photo of a beautiful bird in a tree? It is had to do I know. I love your culinary dish too. It does look like something from television or a magazine, yum!
The buntings are a gorgeous shade of blue, Martha. It's a perfect photo for Blue Monday. I hope your party didn't wear you out. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary
Love the color of the Indigo Bunting. You have a beautiful garden. And the tomatoe dish sounds delicious.
