The Shakespeare Garden at the famous Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens (San Marino, California) features a great variety of delphiniums in colors ranging from pinks through purples to soft blues – and some startlingly bright blue delphiniums that are impossible to miss! While working on this image, I was reminded of Paul Mauriat’s classic instrumental hit from the 1960s, “Love Is Blue” (linked below).
