Blue is a colour I like, so there is a lot featured in the house and the garden. Here are some examples..

Blue glassware in the bathroom
The window is one of a pair that I bought at an auction years ago, and have always hoped to make them a feature in my home. I think I might clean up the frame a bit, put hooks in the top, and hang them from the window, where the sun can shine through. The glass is hand made.

Blue and White china in the living room
The diamond patterned china is hand made and hand painted in Thailand. Over the years we have brought quite a lot back from our trips there.The Spode jug in the centre belonged to my great grandmother, and the white coffee jug which belonged to my grandmother commemorated the first session of the Australian Parliament, which I think was in 1921 or thereabouts. The Duke and Duchess of York, later to become King George V1 and Queen Elizabeth represented the royal family at this event. The white jug on the middle shelf also deserves a mention. It was one of a set belonging to Les' mother, and he can remember from a very young age lying in a pram in the kitchen and looking at it.

and now to the garden...these are blooming now

How lovely, all of it!

I simply adore that blue window and the wee bottles.
I love all of the beautiful blue glassware and the handmade pane.

Thanks. So do I.
I feel I'm in a time warp looking at your garden flowers, which bloomed here 4 months ago! *g*

Such a nice collection of blue & white ware... and very nice stories behind all of them. Mine, alas, are not so storied.

I think the blue glass pane would look lovely hanging in a window. I probably wouldn't even clean up the frame at all (except for dusting off surface dirt). But then I like rustic patina on things like that. :)

I wasn't actually going to clean up the frame extensively, just wash the dirt off it.
I particularly like the blue glass pieces - beautiful.
Thanks. I like them too.
So beautiful blues! ♥ You have a wonderful collection of blue bottles and glass (and tableware, too), and I love how the light shines through them. I have some blueish mineral water bottles on my bedroom window sill, but they totally pale in comparison, in every sense possible. The forget-me-nots are among my most favourite flowers, and my favourite kind in spring! So great to see them already in bloom for you!
I just realised, seeing pics from you from the other side of the globe, with opposite seasons, somehow enhances them for me quite a bit. Isn't that a fun side-effect of such a lovely friendship? :o)
I enjoy seeing the alternate seasons too.

I have more blue glass than that. Those pieces were readily to hand.
Oh I love the bottles! But I think I like the blue flowers best of all :-)
I love the light through the blue glass
So do I.
