Blue Monday

Happy Blue Monday! Would you believe this is my 201st post? Hard to believe!!
Today's offering will be short and sweet. I'm on the run so hopefully you will enjoy what I have for you today.

First up, is a beautiful blue hydrangea. I love hydrangeas of all colours but there's something very special about the blue ones!

Then there is this little cherub, asleep in the crib! I don't think there is anything more innocent than the sight of a sleeping baby! This is my grandson Zachary and he is 10 and a half months. Lots of blue here.
This is him again before taking a nap. He reminds me of his father, all smiles and not wanting to nap. I miss those days! {I think}Blue on his t-shirt, blue on his little blankie, and a blue critter; I believe it's Eeyore he is holding. I miss Zachary! This little darling lives way out on the other side of the country! Visits with this grandmother are very far apart! Boo-hoo!!
Thank you Sally for hosting another Blue Monday. You can visit Sally and all her participants by clicking on the link or the Blue Monday button on my sidebar.
UPDATE ON MY MOTHER: She got through her surgery and is recuperating nicely. Thank you so much, all you prayer warriors out there. Your prayers have made a big difference!
Have a nice day everyone and may God bless you!

    I love hydrangeas, too, but have not been successful at growing them. My studio is decorated with silk hydrangeas.

    Speedy recovery and healing to your mom.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    Oh how beatutiful are God's flowers and what an adorable sweet little boy.
    He is just so cute you want to hold on tight and hug him but little boys do like to move about so I guess we will just have to be happy with your precious photos.
    Thank you so much for sharing your blessings with us.
    Your post are always so wonderful.
    Happy Belated Blue Monday to you.
    May the rest of your week be filled with joy.
    Happy Trails
