November 5th – I Get Cranky Without My Blue Bell (It’s an Ice Cream Joke)

Today’s Kona cotton color of the day is Bluebell.

I did not know much about these flowers before today. I do know that Blue Bell is a brand of ice cream, but we are not talking about ice cream right now. We happen to be talking about the flowers. Bluebells have nodding, bell-shaped blooms. “Bluebell” is the common name of plants in the genus Hyacinthoides. They are not to be confused with Bluebonnets which belong to the genus Lupinus. According to Southern Living bluebells bloom from bulbs in the spring months, and they resemble hyacinths. They have loose flower clusters and narrow leaves on slender green stems. Their bell-shaped blossoms come in shades of beautiful blue, with many appearing more lilac or lavender in hue. Depending on the species, some blooms are scented, and others are unscented.

Today’s color is a soft powdery blue with just a slight undertone of purple. This quilt features Blue Bell, Copen, Sky, Cadet, Evening, Delft, and Cornflower.
