Blue Monday: Rest In Peace Sally
I’ve been posting blue images for over two years now, linking them to the Blue Monday theme run by Smiling Sally on blogspot. Last Tuesday she passed away after a lengthy battle with congestive heart failure. Although I knew that she had recently had a spell in hospital, the news still came as a huge shock. I have never met Sally and we were very different people in many ways, but I liked her very much! She was a retired teacher, married for over fifty years with a close bond to her family. Many of her posts where about her husband, children, grandchildren or her new great-grandson. They meant they world to her and my thoughts are with them all at this sad time.
Sally always left me such lovely comments on my posts. She was amazed at how many natural blues I found in flowers, birds, butterflies and more! Her meme for the post was of the Blue Jay, a wonderful natural blue bird of the USA. I’d love to see them in the wild one day. She always loved seeing my photos of our Blue Tits from the UK and so this is what I choose to share with you all today, in remembrance of Sally. I will continue to post a Blue Monday every week to continue Sally’s wish to spread some joy and happiness around the world at the start of the week with her favourite colour.
