I was on the East Coast a couple of weeks ago, visiting in Maine, New Hampshire and Connecticut. One of the highlights of the trip was my sister’s purchase of a mood ring. This was in a gift shop in Perkins Cove in Ogunquit. Well, this mood ring gave us many laughs. The most prominent and frequent colour was blue – which meant that she was happy. So blue has to be one of my colours for this month. When I arrived in Seattle, one of the things that struck me was the BLUE hydrangeas – they are everywhere. Now I am well used to red and pink hydrangeas in Dublin, but we seldom have blue. The picture to the right is one of my favourite bright blue houses on my street here. If you look closely you can see the Old English Sheepdog who lies on the sofa looking out the picture window. I always wave as I walk past and then he doesn’t bark at me.
Mr. (or Mrs.) Robin on the roof of the Caprice Kitchen cafe – outlined against the blue sky – this was taken near our house – mornings have tended to be overcast and then we have been having clear blue skies in the afternoons.
just to show that we have pink in Seattle, in fact we have many many colours as this time of year
