Days of Potential Blue
The breeze across my yard the day I am writing this post is a cool blue giving me goosebumps on my bare arms. I wander peaking at each and every plant trying to decode its message long before the blue blossoms open wide blowing me away with their shades of azure, teal, cobalt, grape, gentian... Blue is peace and sighs. Blue is new beginnings and freshness. Blue is the color where the ocean meets the blue of the horizon and where the sky kisses the ocean's surface and promises the potential of new vistas and new days and new growth.
Even the pretty bluebirds have potential new blue color to add to the garden this summer. They picked the most practical birdhouse this year. (Last year there was some discussion about where they would take up residence, if you recall.) No blue roof or twining flowers to draw curious predators this time. Just the bigger house facing away from the prevailing winds. I am excited to greet them and welcome their blueness.
Blue usually means sadness or coldness, but in my yard it means potential for wowness!
