Hope you are all having a great Bank Holiday (UK) weekend? I’m having a lovely one: the weather could be a bit sunnier but at least it’s dry.
I’ve spent most of the weekend in the garden and my garden project is nearly complete, I’ll put a before and after up later on.
May 1st and Breezy Knees Gardens in Warthill are open again for the season. Lots of pretty blossom on the trees and lots of flowers in bloom. I can’t wait to see how the gardens change throughout the year. A quick video of part of my visit. Let me know if you want to see more like this.
A big THANK YOU to all who have bought me a coffee (donated) to keep my page up and running, it is much appreciated. If you want to make a one of ‘coffee’ please see the link at the bottom of the page.
Monday blues – the weekend is over, the weather is beautiful and work again! I thought I would share some ‘blue’ images to shake away those blues!
Origin of Feeling Blue – Many cultures relate various colors to different moods, or assign other symbolic meaning to them. For example, in many English speaking cultures, red can signify anger, black can mean death or evil, white can show purity, and green can represent jealousy or a talent for growing plants.
The use of the color blue to mean sadness goes all the way back to the 1300s. Some sources point to Geoffrey Chaucer as the first author to write the word blue.
He wrote Wyth teres blewe and with a wounded herte in his poem Complaint of Mars from around the year 1385. Nowadays, we would write with tears of blue and a wounded heart. This could mean from its very first appearance, blue was connected with sadness.
