She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
聽Then passed right by-
And never knew.

~~Shel Silverstein

  1. Pretty!! Oh, and a very clever use of the poem. One of my favourites of your posts, Michelle. I love blue flowers 馃檪 xo

  2. I’m with Angelia — I love blue flowers too. I planted two flowering trees off my deck in the house I used to live in (can’t remember the name of the flowering trees— ordered them from Cottage Farm) and they grew over 15 feet and bloomed blue all through the warm months.

  3. I also wanted to mention that your flower pictures are gorgeous.

What's on your mind?
