A Blue Garden

As Queen Astrid's best friend, Anna Sparre, recalls in her memoirs, Queen Elisabeth of Belgium loved horticulture and kept a special garden featuring a variety of blue flowers. She had a firm belief in the soothing effects of blue. So, in her honor, I present some lovely blue blossoms.

Anna Sparre remembered that after leaving the garden, everything seemed garish and she thought there might be truth in the Queen's theory. What do you think? Are blue flowers relaxing?
