Nothin' but Blue Skies


I would like to thank Sally at Smiling Sally for taking the time to host our Blue Mondays, especially this week because she just finished moving to a new home.

Today, I'd like to share some blue skies I captured with my camera, primarily in and around Vicksburg. Isn't it amazing how many wonderful shades of blue God has in His paintbox!
















Barbara at The Purple Goat Lady is having a fun giveaway related to Blue Monday. Be sure and visit Barbara to see the lovely prizes she's giving away. I'm sure you will enjoy her uplifting blog, too.

Wow! Beautiful pictures, Janie! There is nothing that makes me happier than a beautiful blue sky with the exception of an amazing sunset or sunrise where the sky is either on fire or pink.

Happy Blue Monday...

Perfect collection of beautiful blue!

The shot of the white Lacey flower is amazing! Love the pondering woman sculpture...the weathered look about it, timeless beauty.

Nicely done!
