BLUE BIRDS, BLUE SKY, BLUE PLANET

CFFC: Blue

There’s an old folk song that many people sang back when we were all young. It was about a dog named “Blue.” I never had a dog named blue, but every time I heard the song, I remembered every dog I ever had — even though none were Blue.

Bluebirds
Blue Jays
Blue coffee house
What a sky!
Blue in green water
Blue Veronica or Speedwell (finally — the right name!)

  1. Oh Marilyn, your blues are absolutely fascinating. The birds are so pretty 😀 😀

    • Thank you! My favorite are the bluebirds — because they are bluebirds and that’s such a pretty color. But the rest of the blues are good too 🙂 Don’t we wish we could get those colors in paints or fabric? I always look for it, but it’s never quite the same.

  2. Instant love for all those BLUEs…. it’s my all-time favourite colour and although I own many colours, blue will always be a winner.
    Those birds!!!
    I called my 1st husband Bläuling (sounds like the name of a fish, but he was always wearing blue and I didn’t – at a time – know his name, so, to distinguish him from his brother, he was called ‘Bluey’!)

    Your ‘blue primroses’ are not…. We call them ‘cats’ eyes’ – nobody knows why because blue eyed cats are rather unusual…. but their correct name (in German and Latin) is Ehrenpreis (price of honour!) and I have found this:

    And even better, searching for English written sites, I found that you would call it speedwell…. – there, I learned another new thing today!
    Here a link for a (rather pricey) first pot of them:

    Hope that helps – if not, no problem with nor for me! 😉
