Nothing but blue skies from now on................

Summer has returned to Normandy and blue skies are the norm (!) once again.
For Mary's Mosaic Monday at the little red house and Blue Monday with Smiling Sally a little taster to brighten your day.
If the sight of blue skies fills you with joy,
if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has the power to move you,
if the simple things in nature have a message you understand,
Rejoice, for your soul is alive.

As some of you will already know Sally has been hospitalised for some weeks now
 but the latest on her blog is that she's doing o.k.
Do pop over for a visit and say hi to Sally's grandaughter Lauren
 who assisted Sally with this week's Blue Monday.

  1. The skies are blue over the Island today. I love to stretch out on the chaise and look way up to where the giant cedars meet the sky - the contrast is a constant joy.

  2. Enno and I were outside all day and my nose is sunburned. I didn't even think of that it has been gray so long. I am glad your weather is also good. It is supposed to get hot this week!

  16. Here's to blue skies everywhere! I enjoyed hearing about your first car. Mine was a 1953 Morris Oxford that had been kept in storage for 10 months each year until I bought it in 1965. So it was in perfect shape - leather seats and all! Hope your friend Sally is feeling better soon.
