We've got storms coming this afternoon. But this morning's blue eyes were wide awake and ready for the day.

TEXAS BLUE EYES ffo - I fertilized this one in the early spring and it paid off with the most saturated color and best bud count I've had on this one in four seasons.

METALLIC BLUE EYES clump

CERULEAN WARBLER duo

INDIGO BUNTING ffo

JITTERBUG BLUES - This one is a big clump now with lots of blue-eyed blooms, but the flowers open late and it's hard to photograph in full sun.

And here are some of my blue eyed seedlings.

Seedling Redefined Design X Blue Eyed Bandit #1 - This is best sky blue eye I've gotten on this seedling so far

Seedling Redefined Design X Blue Eyed Bandit #2 ffo

Seedling Smooth Jazz X Mort Morss

Seeding Precious Candy x Twilight Illusion - The eye is not really blue, but sort of blue violet

My favorite seedling is the last one, Precious Candy x Twilight Illusion. From the others I really like TEXAS BLUE EYES, CERULEAN WARBLER and JITTERBUG BLUES. Marg

Another batch of true beauties. My favorite is that lovely clump of METALLIC BLUE EYES.

All of these blue eyes are stunning. Two of these I have wanted forever: Cerulean Warbler and Texas Blue Eyes. Your photos of them are outstanding. Your seedlings are exceptionally beautiful too. I love all of your pictures today (no surprise there). It is always a treat to 'wander' through your garden.

All those gorgeous blued eyed babies! It seems as if your Cerulean arbler is having a good "on" year. Beautiful! Actually, your second seedling is my favorite of this group.

Lovely lovely seedlings, every one! I love blue eyes & yours are great. Texas Blue Eyes is probably my favorite, wonderful color. Indigo Bunting looks quite brilliant too, love Metallic Blue Eyes too, that is a wonderful clump.

Jean - I only fertilized a few this year. I use Bayer 3-in-1 for roses and flowers, more for the systemic insecticide than the fertilizer. It got too hot too early this year, and I was afraid to apply it when it was in the 90s. Some years I put on compost and Milorganite, but hot weather happened too fast for that.

RE: seedling 2

Thanks Annika! The eye on that seedling has kind of a watercolor wash effect that I really like.

RE: Another blue eye

Chasing Shadows has a dark blue violet eye, but for some reason it photographed as blue today.

RE: Indigo Bunting

Nancy - Indigo Bunting is quite striking. The eye photographs more of an electric blue that it really is. It's more of a denim blue in person.

Debra: I haven't noticed any garden shots yet. Are you holding back on us?;-).
These are all pretty and blue eyes are always a favorite.

Julia - Yes, I'm holding back because of tall grass and weeds growing in my gardens. My gardens look like hillbilly hell this year. The clumps are the most you're going to see until I get a chance to tame them. With the early extreme heat plus bloom starting early before school was out, I didn't have time to take care of them properly.
