Life Looks Pretty in Blue

Last weekend my husband and I went to our local Botanic Garden to walk for a bit. I took my camera. Other than the sky and water there are not a lot of other blue things in nature but since I started this blog I look for and see blue wherever I go. I pointed out these rocks near the water and said aren't they a pretty blue? He said "Yeah . . . in a kind of greenish-gray way."

What? They're BLUE. Those rocks are blue.
What he saw . . .
Walking along I noticed the water also seemed so . . . blue.  I was ecstatic. So much brilliant blue in nature today! Now that I was looking for it.
Still slightly green-gray to him.
I was seeing the prettiest blues wherever I went.
Blue gravel!

He wasn't finding glory in the "blueness" of nature that day. Either he was being contrary or he just didn't get it. Then he said, "Wait a minute, give me your glasses."  Don't know why it took us so long to figure out that even though the lenses on my new sunglasses look black, they are tinted - BLUE!  Duh. Of course. His are tinted green-gray. So my view of the world on a sunny day is  . . . blueish. I don't really think I would have it any other way.

I know for sure these were definitely blue . . . .


  1. Your blue sunglasses made everything so beautiful and definitely blue. A gorgeous blue vase, and I bet those blue hyacinths smell fabulous.

  2. Tee hee hee!! Love the view of your world thru blue tinted glasses!
