Sing a Rainbow Day 7…

Red and yellow and pink and green,

Purple and orange and blue,

I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow,

Sing a rainbow too.

Today is the last day of my Sing a Rainbow Challenge, therefore, as you can guess, I’m feeling a little blue.

Blue is the colour of honesty, reliability, trust and responsibility. Choose blue for peace, quiet and tranquility. Many people favour this colour because it is the colour of nature; water and the sky, although not common in fruit or vegetables .

And tell me, where would we be without our blue jeans?

I love all shades of blue: baby blue, alice blue, cornflower, cyan, periwinkle, navy, midnight, sapphire and royal blue.

“Blue is the only color which maintains its own character in all its tones… it will always stay blue;” Raoul Dufy, French Fauvist Painter, 1877-1953

Here are a few of my blue images…

“Colours speak all languages.”

  1. Blue is lovely. I’ve only recently come to enjoying it though. I used to be all about the fiery colours. Nowadays I wouldn’t be able to choose a favourite colour and that’s a good thing I reckon : )
