But first, some blue items. I am not really into the whole meme/tagging thing but sometimes I see something on another blog that I want to imitate. Today Betts started a "rainbow week" of posting items of different colors, starting with blue. It was easy enough to pick up my camera and join the game.
|Many of Mom's paintings have blue skies or blue backgrounds.
|Then there are the vases: Chinese enameled ones that were a gift from a student, a deco potpourri vase from my great-grandmother's house, and one of a pair of urns, also ancestral, that holds an umbrella palm in water.
On the kitchen windowsill, a pastis carafe. I frequented a Parisian cafe for about a week once and asked the waiter where I could get one. He sent me to the flea market, but when I came back empty-handed, he slipped this one to me.
My grandfather was a great photographer and I am lucky to have many of his bird shots, including this great blue (!) heron.
And finally, ephemeral and lovely, a blue crocus that is blooming in my front yard today. Where has winter gone?
