Not as in feeling blue. I feel OK - a bit harassed maybe, a bit tired but not down.
This is a post about the colour blue. I decided to write it after coming across a post of Annie's and reading about a link-up over at Tara's blog. The Photo Gallery is simply a weekly get-together where you write a post (with photos) loosely based around a given theme. And this week's theme is 'Colour'.
I opted for blue because of the glorious skies we've had this past week. The photo above was taken when out walking near the house. We're so lucky here; it's maybe five minutes up the road and you go through some woods, climb a stile and head out into open moorland. A stream runs alongside the footpath. I used to come here after work (and a horrible commute) and just sit and decompress for a little while.
Of course, I couldn't do a post without mentioning an exciting find: the first bluebells of the year. We also have muscari in the garden, and there are forget-me-nots growing out of crevices on the roadside.
Yes, I've been playing around on Pixlr. My camera lens hasn't been smeared with dirt.
Blue skies mean washing on the line. Although the forecast for the weekend isn't looking too good so maybe I'll hold off on the washing until next week. Shame.
I'm looking forward to getting out and visiting some of my favourite secret bluebell spots for a meander and a photo-snapping session. I'm also wondering when it would be a respectable time to pour myself a nice G&T. Without going into detail, it's been one heck of a week. The weekend couldn't come soon enough for me.
I hope you have a good one and get the chance to stop and smell the bluebells.
