True Colors Thursday - Sky Blue

True colors Thursday rolls around once again! If you want to play, let our hostess, Blue, know!
This is the blue sky over the farmer's corn field on our walkie!
And this is the same blue sky further into our walkie! This is our 7AM sky!
This is a painting of our red barn! Didn't the artist do a great job on the blue sky?!
That's dad at a barn raising in Charlotte, Vermont! No way would you catch our mom wayyyyyyy up there against that blue sky!
This weathervane is on our dad's workshop barn! It's an eagle against the sky blue sky!
This weathervane is against the blue sky on dad's lumber barn! It's a trotter horse!

This is a painting that unfortunately we do not own and it was painted by one of our very favorite artists who is also our friend, Marieluise Hutchinson! Her paintings always have the most magnificent skies!We couldn't resist this one - a sky blue hydrangea flower!
Next week's color is RAINBOW !

So until next time...............

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Hi Maggie & Mitch
Lots of lovely blue skies there. We also have a blue hydrangea - we were a bit worried about your dad way up there against the blue sky - just think if he fell he would be black and 'blue' all over!!!!
Stay safe dad.

We have those poofy flowers in our front yard.

Your dad is so brave! Master says his days up high like that are over.


Fenway said...

I'm at the beach frantically waving my paws at your ferry!

Enjoy the lovely hydrangeas (and other flowers) on Nantucket. They are so much more vivid in this temperate climate...Ms. Alpha has been planting them all over our property cause they bloom when we're here.

And watch out for those skunks!!! Remember—you are Earth Dogs and these varmints are irrestible.

Your pal,
PS: I don't smell at all skunky this morning! And, did you know that before we go into the show ring we doggies are sprayed with a special perfume? Yuck!!!

Wonderful blue sky pics!! We especially like seeing the weather vanes. Mom has one of a Black Angus (the cattle we raise) that she is after Dad to put up, but so far it's just in a stand in our carport.
