Indigo — MidWeek Blues / My Alphabe-Thursday -- "I" -- Two Questions -- MidWeek Blues

And now for my Thursday Two Questions: (See Thursday Two Questions by Self Sagacity for more reading. You could also make your own by checking in at this link.)
Last week 's post was about Hush Puppies, either shoes or the fried kind to eat with fried fish. The responses were very interesting.
My Two Questions for this week (you can answer just one if you wish):
1. What is you favorite wild flowers? Tell us a bit about your experience with them.
Texas has a lot of wild flowers. The most common are blue bonnets, Indian paint brush, golden rod, and assorted yellow flowers.
2. What do you have that is indigo blue?
We also have quite a bit of indigo blue pottery, glass vases, and food dishes.
Bonus Question: What is your favorite outside activity?
You probably guessed that mine is playing golf. Next would be going for long walks. Before I developed all these knee problems I would run. I liked running much better than golfing. And before I sold my motorcycle I like riding that bike a whole lot, even better than the running (faster speeds for one thing so I could cover more ground/territory).

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo picture on the right. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did. Or do less. All she requires is a PICTURE WITH BLUE, you don't have to write.
out in the forest behind my
house in the spring.. leave it to little Jim to incorporate Golf and little blue flowers in his letter "I"....
My favorite outdoor activity (at this time of year 100+ degrees) is running. Running to the car and turning on the AC really fast! I love coming to visit your site and read all of the things you have to say!
2. I have a set of dishes that have many different colors and indigo blue is just one of the colors.
3. Oh this is a hard question and I'm going to surprise you with my answer. Boating is my favorite outside activity. Out on the water going to a destination. It's pure freedom.
Have a terrific day. :)
I've kept up with watering all my flowers etc but the lawn is on its own. Queen Anne growing in my dried up lawn has a message for us all ? Some things do better in hard situations than others ? Not sure...but it's a thought ?
Ike I can find the cruise for you I be,I've it is something with crystal and I saw a few days ago that it is sale now Nd they Re very cheap because of last minutes. I hope I can read the words don.t look easy
2) My candle holders are indigo, and that's all I can remember.
I used to love volley ball, but now walking is enough.
I have always loved Queen Anne's lace. Did you know that it is a member of the carrot family??
Guess in the future I will be hunting for my golf ball amidst the wildflowers instead of in the washes and rocks of Tucson.
thanks for visiting...TWICE!!! To answer your question re the bike, it is a Honda ST1300...good all round rugged bike with a comfortable ride (and a fabulous driver!!!). The hubs has taken it to Mexico and to Canada and lots of long distance rides.
As for Patagonia, we were there in fall, but that particular bog with all the moss on it...it's always eerie like that in all seasons...just that the colors are a little different. It's a cool spot, though. Way south between Punta Arenas and Puerto Natales.
Have a great day and thanks for checking in.
Oh, by the way, indigo...love that color!
my favorite wild flowers are the ones I see while on my trail. I don't know their names. I love the way they just comfortably lie. They don't need anyone's approval to grow where they grow.
Lovely flower color!
We have lots of wild flowers in the back yard (dandelions, butercups & daisies!!)
Hope you're managing to stay cool in yr part of the world! Boiling here!!
Have a good weekend!
I have indigo blue table linens, and my favourite outdoor activity is swimming.
1. Wild flowers? I love sunflowers best.
2. I think I have a few tops that are indigo
3. I love riding my bicycle.
Happy weekend to you.
You already answered the color.
Favorite flower? Are you serious? I need a bigger screen to list them all.
Favorite outside activity? In Arizona? In the summer? Ummm... turning my a/c in the car on higher?
I'm just all kinds of a smart alec today!
Thanks for the fun link for the letter 'I'.
