Searching for Roy G Biv 4: "Old Town" Blues Update #7


I took my camera with me on Tuesday, on a trip to one of my favorite color-collecting places....Old Town Alexandria (Virginia).

There were "signs" of BLUE everywhere...


And this interesting flag...I wonder what it represents...


A subtle BLUE...


And a glorious BLUE sky!


Where did you find your BLUES?

Post up to five BLUE photos today and leave a comment here and/or at Jennifer Coyne Qudeen's blog. We'll link to your post for our monthly Roy blog hop! I'll be posting updates through Saturday, May 23.

Jennifer has her usual marvelous collection BLUES! Love the horse, drawing and water reflections.

Lisa at arzigogolare is getting "up close and personal" with Hydrangea BLUES!

Fiona at Paper Ponderings has some Thursday Thoughts on the importance of Play and some BLUE experiments...I want some of those fabrics :)!

Fran at At the End of the Day has some "heavenly" BLUES...love that "sheepish" BLUE!

Susan and Elizabeth at PGFiber2Art were feeling the BLUES today with a wonderful selection...love the yarn bombing!

Mary Ann at Blue Sky Dreaming is "musing" about BLUES. Ooo...love that BLUE bowl too! ...and how it seems to reappear in your art piece.

Lynda at Bloom, Bake & Create is having lots of fun experimenting with BLUE! I love those cloth napkins!

Maya at Take Diversion gives us some Indian BLUES in unexpected places.

Margaret at Charlton Stitcher is featuring some "true" BLUES. Please revisit Margaret's post...I screwed up the link and it is now correct...so sorry!

Cathy at Bucolic Dreaming is joining the Search for the first time...Welcome! She shares some vibrant BLUES from her studio.

Linda Stokes has a selection of rich BLUES. I especially love the hand printed fabrics.

  12. What fun, Julie! Looks like you had a great walk that day, and it's amazing how many shades of blue you found. And what. I ask, is better than finding a sign that reads, "The garden is open." : )
