Fifty shades of blue


First of all...Happy 2014 everyone!

This  year has started off with a whirl of activity for me- friends, travel, gardening, yoga, work, a 10K and so much more that I feel blessed and grateful.
This has also meant that I've had no time to update my blog. I missed it. 
After a long gap I have sat down today - on a sunny Saturday morning to write again.

As I was going through my clicks of Georgia, I was struck by how many different shades of blue I had captured. So I decided to share some of them with you.
 Here we go...let's paint the town blue...

Freedom Square, Tbilisi

The pale blue sky peeped through the trees...

and the vines laden with fruit clung to the balcony.

More blue hanging from balconies as we made our way to the
Dry Bridge Market.
Enjoyed breakfast in blue pottery...

sitting cross from the Lady in blue ...
on Rustaveli Avenue.

We spotted this blue poetry while we were walking towards Mtatsminda; only if the car wasn't parked there.

And it wasn't ...when we made our way back.

The topsy turvy world of  Mtatsminda Park.
Surrealism and blue (Mtatsminda Park)

Stopped for lunch in the Old Town (Altstadt)...

I'm sure a better photographer would have done justice to this unique opportunity- I love the gentleman's expression, his cat and the art behind him...all on the street.

Isn't this blue just stunning with the grey?

The Bridge of Peace hugging the Kura River.

'Blue bells' on Jvari Monastry
Jvari Monastery stands on the rocky mountaintop at the confluence of the Mtkvari and Aragvi rivers, overlooking the town of Mtskheta, which was formerly the capital of the Kingdom of Iberia
Jvari Monastry and the blue jumper.

And here I end my posts on Georgia. It has taken me much longer than planned- life took over!
