Morning Glory

I was very excited when I went outside this morning and saw the first bloom on my morning glory. I planted the seeds very late this year. In honor of my morning glory blooming, I have made my blog blue again, like it originally was and I've got my dainty blue tea set ready in case you have time for a cup of tea today. I love blue. There is blue in my garden in the summer.
Blue in the garden in the spring.
Blue in our home all year round.
What can I say! I love blue! I love lots of colors, but blue is my favorite. Did I ever tell you I think blue is God's favorite color too? Look how much blue he used when he created the earth; all the sky and water. Green is probably a close second.

What is your favorite color?

A very belated thank you to Michelle for this sweet award. I pass this on to all of you creative bloggers out there. There are so many of you, it's hard to choose one!
Thanks to Kathy for this delightful award. I want to pass it on to anyone who has ever left me a comment. You have all been so KIND, TRUSTING, HONEST and CARING. You are a remarkable group of ladies and I appreciate every one of you each time you take the time to leave me a comment.

Hope your day is filled with blue skies. I'm praying for those of you in Florida in the path of tropical storm Fay, that you'll be safe.

  1. Hi Rhondi,

    I was stopping by to thank you for your kind note but when I opened your blog page I was Blown away with the Beautiful Blue! It is Breathtaking!!! From the Breakables to the Blossoms the Blanzonry is Brilliant!!!

    P.S. I love alliteration!

  2. Hi Rhondi...I love all your blue!!! Your morning glory looks absolutely beautiful!


  3. You have given me the blues today- the good kind :) I love the morning glory- one of my faves! Have a great Tuesday!

  4. Ohhhhhhhhh I love blue. Red and blue are my favorite colors. All of the flowers are so pretty. Good for you getting the award, you deserve it. Every blue and white dish, cup, plate etc are just too pretty for words.

  5. Beautiful post today. I LOVE morning glories. I planted them twice this summer and for some reason they didn't grow. I was so disappointed. Now when I want to see them I will come and look at yours.

    Have a nice day,

  6. Congratulations on your awards Rhondi! I love using blue in our garden. It gives the illusion of space in a tiny garden like ours. I like very many colors but think red is my favorite.

    Hugs ~

    Your blue snapshot collections are stunning!

  8. My morning glories are almost done, so it was a nice treat to visit today and see your bloom.. just beautiful!

    Have a wonderful day.


  9. I love blue the best too! Incredible blue pictures! My second favorite color is pink, then red. Hmmm, green looks so pretty on walls though. I just plain love color!

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures!


  10. Oh yes.... blue in all shades... to me it is a soothing color....

  11. Hi Rhondi -
    You and I think alike. We both love blue! Your morning glory is fantastic. Do you know its name? I'd love to plant morning glory and would love to have blue. And some yellow. Your blue things are beautiful. I would love to join you for tea and a good chat. Can we sit in the garden near the morning glory?

  12. Hi Rhondi :)

    I love what you said about blue being God's favorite color. What a wonderful way to see things :)

    You kitchen turned out gorgeous! I love the red hutch too.


  13. Hi Rhondi, I just love all your blue! Your pictures of everything blue in your garden is wonderful! That morning glory is so pretty too. Thanks for sharing all your blues!
    Love, Ann

  14. Am loving the blue Rhondi! It's one of my favourite colours. If I could afford it I'd completely do my kitchen in blues and yellows!

  15. Blue is my favorite color, too, Rhondi! :-)

  16. What a gorgeous post, that morning glory had me at hello. Your mosaics are gorgeous, besides blue and white, my favorite doodling is creating mosaics on flickr. Have a beautiful day Rhondi.


  17. Beautiful post...all the blues made me smile.

    I love morning glories and your first bloom is so pretty. I didn't plant any this year but I will for sure next year. Have a lovely day...hugs, Linda

  18. Gorgeous "blue" collages Rhondi. Blue is my favourite colour too and I absolutely love morning glory!

  19. That is the most beautiful page! Blue is my colour too, and I love to see it used in so many ways.

  20. Aren't morning glories just the happiest flower? I didn't get my seeds planted this year, so I'll just enjoy yours!

    My favorite color is green, but your blue is fabulous!

  21. Hello Sweet Rhondi!

    Your blue posting is breath taking! So beautiful and peaceful...I love Morning Glories because they remind me of my Dear Mother. She always had them blooming out the kitchen window. LOVE your blue background. It makes everythng pop out!

    I am making a little something blue at the moment and would love to finish them for you! When I picked up the "blue" last night I thought "wonder who will be getting these!" Then you came by today! If you would like to email me your address, they are yours!

    Have a wonderful day Rhondi!

  25. hi!

    Just stopped by to say hello! Im new! Love all your pics of blue! I just love all the colors, it is hard to pick just one. I have nothing growing in my yard, no seriously, nothing! I sooooo want to have flowers and green, and well, something...anything! LOL
    Thanks for visiting with me!

  26. Great pictures. They are just beautiful.

    You know I think you are probably right about blue being God's favorite color.

    And, from another perspective - I prefer "Duke" blue to "Carolina" blue. ;-)

  27. Blue, blue, blue - I can never have too much of it. I've just caught up on your posts and have to say I love your kitchen now. You're right - the yellow is perfect.

  28. Hi Rhondi,
    Wow, gorgeous pictures and mosaics of blue! Love the tea cups and pot.I tend to like all colours but mostly green and red. But in my kitchen I like some blue here and there, gives such a freshness to it all. Congrats to all Your awards! Isn´t blogland a lovely place!


  29. Blue is my favourite colour too! Your blog looks so beautiful

  30. I love the way blue looks but I never seem to put it in my house.

  31. Hi, Rhondi! Just loved this blue post...all these blue-themed mosaics are lovely! Congratulations on your awards--well done, and well deserved for your friendly, creative place here. Happy Days ((HUGS))

  32. I am STILL waiting for my first blooms from my Morning Glories. They've covered my obelisks with green glorious vines but not ONE blom. So, I'll hold onto hope that I'll get some before a freeze does them in.

  33. Blue always looks lovely inside and outside of the home. The mosaics you have made with your blue photos are fabulous. Congratulations on your awards. Guess what I have another one waiting for you over on my home blog! x

  34. I love your blue gardens! I want more of that in mine...it just never seems to work out that way...self control with colors is hard for me!
    thanks for visiting my blog...good luck in the give away!

  35. I love your pictures!!! I love blue and pink.


  36. Your flower mosaics are just wonderful. This is one of your most beautiful posts ever! Thanks for sharing...Roxanne

  37. Oh my goodness! All these blues are beautiful! So relaxing and comforting to look at. I think I will save this post just to look at when I am feeling kind of, well, BLUE. Seriously, thanks for sharing it.

  38. Wow!! Your blog is so beautiful, Rhondi! Cute name, too!! I love your collages in blue! Pink is my favorite color but I love aqua & blue, too.
    Hugs, Sherry
