My favorite color to wear?
As of last night, every piece of clothing we had in the house was clean, except what we were wearing & the sheets on the bed. That won't last long, but it feels wonderful to be "caught up." As i was putting away my tops i seemed to detect a pattern. ! Some of these are long-sleeved tops to be put away for the summer (& one is a scrub top for work). Still ! I think i've too many clothes. My second favorite color is white. Then i have a couple of other colors, but invariably i will choose either an aqua/Caribbean blue top or a white one. (The orange in the background of the top pic is Duane's SAR uniform.)
I would never paint my house blue, probably not the walls inside either, but i do love the color. I love to wear it. I love to gaze at the blue sky. Or the water. Or at blue flowers.
Ok, not blue, but here are some purple/lilac items. The first 2 Duane took in OC, at his parents' house, although the flowers are actually bordering the neighbor's driveway. The second i took of the wild onion blooming in our yard. It doesn't show very well. The last is a lilac on our neighbor's lilac bush. Lilacs didn't do all that well this year. The late snow & freeze seemed to do bad things to them.
One of our peach trees is dead, too. The guy from the local nursery told Duane that we probably it died in a late freeze when it had already begun to draw water from the ground & the freeze destroyed the cells that had the water. It looks very sad. I don't think the other peach tree is going to produce, either, so we will have to decide what to do about them.
