Friday Blues

This weeks photo challenge set by Postcards from Gibralter is Blue 

Blue is a whole range of colours, but it can also be a feeling. However, as I’m off to the Harrogate Spring Flower Show today I’m feeling far from blue! It’s an annual girlie trip out for my friend and I, I’ve lots of plants to buy this year for the beds I’ve cleared so I’ve money in my purse and a smile on my face 🙂 I might even buy some more blue flowers…

As I’ve embroidered a lot of flowers, there’s a fair few blue ones…

Both my travelling sketchbooks have been blue…

On our holidays we say some wonderful deep blue skies…DSC_0365

..and water, this looks like sky but it is actually a blue lake we saw on the Great Ocean Road, it’s this colour for several months of the year.DSC_0164

The cool blue of morning light…

Twelve Apostles

…or the warm dusky blues as the sun first rises…Sunrise

I rather like blue, in all it’s shades, I’ll let you know how many blue plants I buy later 🙂

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
