Blue Monday - Blue Leaves


I came across these blue leaves while going through a pathway at the botanical gardens. They caught my eye because they were a small patch of blue color among a sea of green leaves. They were so unusual I had to get a photo of them.

I love this image. I also enjoy taking photos of leaves, not just the flowers. There is so much beauty in them. Thank you very much for confirming the identity of the Agapanthus shot I took. I am always happy to have a flower I don't know identified. I am back from San Diego now, got home to rain last night. I had a great time and can't wait to visit the west coast again, but it's good to be get home. Thanks again and have a great week.

Denise, I so agree with you on leaves. They are beautiful in their own right. That agapanthus shot you took was stunning. Glad you're back home and you have a great week as well.

Smiling Sally, I know, I've never seen a blue leaf. Love the meme BTW

Kass, thanks, it really is.

Chas, Yes, I got lucky seeing that. Thank you.

oh wow, at first I thought that it was blue because of the way the light was hitting it but I can see that's not the case.

They are indeed unusual and very blue, not just barely blue. It's fun when you find such wonders in nature isn't it?
