Here are a few of my favorite blue things:
This photo reminds me of the wonderful days I spent (some years back now) on the Caravelle beach in Guadeloupe (French West Indies). Ahhhhh blue water, tropical breezes.... Sigh.
From the Caribbean we come back to the States to Clearwater Beach, Florida - where I spent the majority of my youth. Constant worry now that this wonderful beach will be ruined by the recent oil spill. From the warm blue of water and skies in Florida we go to.....
...the icy blues of the Arctic. I took this photo in the summer of 2000. The arctic is absolutely amazing. If you ever have the chance, do go.
Here are some favorite blue flowers. I love these lush, unashamed exhibitionists! The sheer big boldness - What's not to love?
I love the rich blue of my birthstone - the Blue Sapphire....
...and I love the softer, gentler blue of AngelSpouse's birthstone, the Aquamarine.
Next, are a couple of "blues" that I really miss:
Since our move to the West Coast, I really miss this darling little bluebird. When I lived "back east" I was constantly entertained by their shenanigans in the birdbath near the library in our house.
And I can't forget THIS favorite "blue thing" - Hill Street Blues! Oh my! We used to look forward to this every week way back when it was still "the thing". Absolutely loved it!
And here is another beautiful blue thing: Her name is Riki and she belongs to my best friend. Well, I guess you could say my best friend belongs to her!
But my very favorite blue things of all are these jewels here:
This is my darling aqua-eyed girl: Sylvie.
