Beautiful Blues

Let your joy burst forth like the flowers in the spring. ~ unknown

Hello dear friends! I have some luscious shades of blue to share with you today. Isn't the hydrangea simply gorgeous? I love the petals, as delicate as butterfly wings in varying shades of blue.

I have tucked a little bird's nest into it, just because. The little twigs accompanied the nest when my son found it for me. 

This bird's nest was once home to a red-eyed vireo.

I have been sick with the flu bug this past week. Actually, it really started two weeks ago with headaches. I generally don't have trouble with headaches and I have been mostly housebound but this too will soon pass. 

Tea today is with lemon. I've been drinking gallons of lemon water and lemon ginger tea.

Rainy days should be spent at home with a cup of tea and a good book. ~ Bill Watterson

It is raining here today although it is mild. For me, it's a good day to stay put. 

Tea with lemon.

Flowers, books and tea, what could be better when one is down with a bug?

My Churchill Blue Willow teapot and Johnson Brothers Blue Willow teacup are being put to use today as well as this Enoch Wedgwood teacup which depicts Royal Homes of Britain.

Homemade peach danish for my hubby.

My youngest son is celebrating a birthday today. Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!

Thank you for your visit today and I hope you are all keeping well. I wish you a weekend filled with joy!

When you wish someone joy, you wish them peace, love, prosperity, happiness...all the good things. ~ Maya Angelou
