an azure thursday and can you see what she sees


as most will know digby and jackson left earth this week and it wasn't via the alien invasion lamp, both left pain free with their families close... nice but it has made us feel a bit blue for all things lost...

despite mollie insisting it should all be about her azure blue monkey, we had already decided last week to show you the pics that crazy b has been collecting (yep that scary word again), you see she plays this cloud game thing...

her grandmama used to play it with her when she was really young, they would watch the clouds and call out when they could see things... a goodie was always a pig proving that yes pigs do indeed fly...

grandmama was always so good at it, quick as a wit she would catch that morphing cloud and turn it into the most tricky things... grandmama was the master of distraction...


grandmama used to also play the driftwood game, finding that magical shape lying on that wind swept beach... hours were spent on those wild west coast beaches... above a clear azure blue sky, best after a storm...

here's b... looking very eighties there b!!...

the rule was you could never reshape it... it had to stay as found, the best bits making it home to grandmamas... a monkey maybe...

and some got a wee bit of extra embellishing... an added bit of jasper for eyes, a piece of coveted fabric for a skirt... a tiny straw hat...


so it's back to the clouds... b reckons she sees lots of cloud dogs amongst the azure coloured sky... is she nuts or has she just got her head firmly stuck in the clouds... that i'll leave up to you...






ok we agree she's odd...

and this last one we have especially for blue, you see it was blue's birthday the other day and we've been saving this find for a special post... an upside down rainbow in an azure blue sky which if you look really hard it's actually making a smiley face! loves and licks blue xxx

next thursday blue's rolled out red and white as the colour of the day... how very carnival

not mad at all - I've always played the cloud game. Mostly I just see cartoon things, like cartoon dogs, birds etc but my best one ever was Bart Simpson surfing ( on an actual board!) down a cloud wave!

Clouds are a lot of fun to watch, but tonight they are bringing us lots of rain and loud booms. We see some beautiful sky pics here tonight. Awesome blues!

A lovely post - I too watch the clouds as they are ever changing and I frequently spy pups, bunnies & dragons.
I can see Jackson in b's cloud photo's - his head popping up, his whiskers.
And thanks for the love & the 'smiley' rainbow - what a special find.

Love, pats & pets
Blue
