Deep Blue

I was able to process some photos last week before the computer transfer began.
I love this flower. I remember visiting the Texas Tech horticultural division in the fall of 2009 to take photos. Kathy and I were on our last lesson as beginning photographers. It was a great field trip. The gal over the whole place, Judith Wilmington, is now a friend. If I have flower questions, she is my go to.
This deep blue flower caught my eye. She said it was a brand new one and I couldn't wait to get one. This year, there it was, at the nursery!

 It amazes me how black the area is that 'holds' the flowers. I forget the name but it's a type of Salvia.

It grows right below the bird bath.
