Today’s entry for Becky’s July Blue Squares challenge features some scenes from the Chicago Botanic Garden. These pictures were taken when the temperatures were a little cooler. As much as I love the Garden, it’s just too hot to enjoy walking around there at the moment.
Butterflies at the Chicago Botanic Garden are my second entry for the July Blues squares. Still trying to catch up with posts and emails. Our youngest grandson is visiting this week so posts and replies may be a bit sporadic but I will get to them all eventually. I am, however, making every effort to keep up with all the excellent blogs that I follow on WordPress.
I’m a bit late getting started on these July Blues squares. Our granddaughter has been visiting for the past week and we have been gadding about all over the place so I’m playing catch-up with posts and replies.
I could have sworn I saw some blue sky the other day! I remember thinking, “So that’s what it looks like!” But then I must have blinked and when I looked again, it was the same dreary grey; the same old overcast, gloomy sky that has hung over us for what seems like an endless amount of time. We need a little light relief. We need a touch of blue.
Blue, to me, says clear, summer skies and warm, inviting lagoons. It means bluebells in the woods and bluebirds on the wing, plump, succulent blueberries, delicate little forget-me-nots and bright blue butterflies.
I long to see lush hydrangeas and majestic delphiniums. I yearn to sit outside and eat ice cream served in a blue and white china bowl. I want to dip my toes in an azure ocean. I want to gaze up into an endless sky. I want blue!
