First Azure Bloom

I managed to catch the first bloom of this Salvia (azurea, for its color) by chance in the last hour of daylight late Tuesday and this plant's botanical name is apt. This picture is a bit tinted from the sunlight, but the flower is indeed blue just like a clear sky.

I love blue flowers. Azure. Such pretty wildflowers.

Hard not to be awed by the color of the sky in a flower. That is for sure. I did however thin for most of the year, though this plant is drought tolerant that I had killed it. It looked so ragged.
