Blueberries  – plump, sweet, and juicy – straight up or floating in a sea of milk.

The sky – clear and blue – sometimes doted with puffy white clouds.

A jay – perched on the feeder – giving orders then collecting food.

Paired with white – and encouraging chant – “We are Penn State.”

My favorite blue – can be seen from the bathroom window – sits at the edge of the patio.






With so much “happy” blue there is no time for feeling blue.

    I love the way you focused on blue. It’s one of my favorite colors. Thank you for sharing. I will be looking for blue things today!

    I have blue hydrangeas in happy riot at the beach house where my siblings and I grew up, yet the ones in my backyard are pink. (Underneath it all, they could/should be blue, but the soil here is different. Funny how where we’re planted makes all the difference in how we turn out. I know that’s a metaphor for something…) Love your “blues”!

    • I had read somewhere that the soil composition affects the color of the flowers. How true that where we are planted and the care we are given determines how we bloom.

  3. blue and gold– Hail to Pitt!!! I love your hydrangeas.

  4. I love blueberries and blue hydrangeas. A lovely summer poem.
    I was once told you can turn hydrangeas blue by making the soil more acidic.

    Blue is my favourite colour – the sea, the sky the blue anemone. And yes, the blueberries. We don’t have many birds with blue in Estonia. River kingfisher is the blueist but super rare. i have seen a glimpse of it only once in my life.
