It's A Blue Day

The day after the eclipse, the skies were exceptionally pretty.  The kind of pretty that made you want to look up at them even while driving.  The weather outside was so strange to me - strange, but peaceful.  Everything looked a bit mysterious.  The sun shined through the clouds brighter than ever, and I could hardly glance at it.  You'll see an eye on the fifth cloud if you look closely.








Flowers in the church.
I've never seen blue daisies before.



 
It's been such a blue day.
I looked down
and realized I was wearing blue too.

Such gorgeous skies...and yes I did see the eye! The blue daisies just match your shirt. Blue is such a beautiful color! Enjoy the rest of your week, Sheri. :D

Beautiful picture Sheri! Blue looks gorgeous on you! Those daisies are so pretty! In South Carolina we experienced the solar eclipse in 100% totality. It was an amazing experience!

Beautiful pictures! The only blue daisies I've ever seen were the ones where the florist MAKES them blue. Those are stunning -- were they just growing wild or did you plant them?

I wonder how blue came to mean feeling bad?

Love those daisies. I wonder if they grew that way or were dyed.

Love the photos.

I am feeling a little blue too. I need to perk up. Going to make cheeseburgers.

Hello Pretty Lady,
Thank you for sharing blue with us today. Blue is my favorite color. I have never seen a blue daisy, I have fallen for them. They are beautiful.

Blue is Nature's color for the sky and water, less for plants and flowers.The blue of the daisies in your photos is stunning - and perfectly matching that of your blouse!

Great photos & great blue post. Fantastic skies.

I believe the daisies are artificially coloured - happy weekend.

Hello, beautiful Sheri in BLUE!!!!!

Isn't blue a happy color? All summer, the blue sky, the blue lakes I visit and the small amount of aqua blue in my home décor have made me very happy. It must be the play of light that creates the blue of nature that makes me energized. Enjoy another beautiful day!

Dewena said...

Sheri, you are right, there was a feeling of mystery outside after the eclipse. Isn't that strange? But wonderful. Your sky photos are amazing and I love your blue theme here, especially the last photo. And I think you're giving us a slightly mysterious look there, girlfriend!

Jeanie said...

I love your cloud photos. Really beautiful skies! It was a nice day (well most of it -- we got dumped with rain late in the day.)

Love that photo of you!

Stephanie said...

Good morning, lovely lady! I just adore that photo of you...I'd say blue is your color {{smiles}}

Happy Monday to you. Love and hugs!

I've never seen blue daisies as well. I think I need to keep my eyes open for them, they're beautiful.
