Dear Bee:

Thanks for your comments.

As to the color blue and flowers.  I do not recall HPB having
said anything about their abundance being indicative of a
"spiritual state" for a country, or area.  It is possible that
that may be true.

I recall that the blue gem, sapphire is written about by HPB in
ISIS UNVEILED:  Vol. I pp. 264-5, 137 top, 139 bot, 271, 514,
ISIS Vol. II  234, 351, 513.

These make interesting reading.

Best wishes,

It seems so to me but I wondered if I might have missed some
connection with astrology but I guess not all writers read
With a few other things, it casts some doubts in my mind over the
authenticity of the book. I was discussing this with a friend so
will show him your post.
Many thanks for your reply.

Now if I may ask you another question. I have been told on good
authority that HPB wrote that blue flowers were a sign of the
spiritual atmosphere of a country or the indications that it was
growing. I can't remember seeing this but I thought you might
come across it.
Here in NZ we are being over run in some places by big blue
and this brought about the remarks by a visiting Theosophist. I
remember the exact words she used but something in that line.

In my study of life atoms, I find them to be carriers of much
information that we have put in them. So it seems they have more
influence than maybe astrology. In this life I don't know enough
astrology to make a sensible comment.

I will certainly have a look at that. Thank you for your post

Kind regards
