Blue Skies, Shining on me...

♫♫☺Bue Skies, shining on me, nothing but blue skies, do I see. ♫♫ Remember the lyrics to the song?  I love it!  My older sis and I always sing it with 2-part harmony and have since we were children!  During this last week we had much rain but there was one evening before dark when the sky was as blue as a robins egg and these fantastic puffy little clouds were floating along.  My camera was just snapping away and I did not know what direction to choose next!  The rendition of Blue Skies by Willie Nelson is not traditional but still uplifting...




I cannot help but smile just to look at these pictures!  If I had a bigger living room, I would frame a set of sky pictures and put them over the sofa, so that I would always see blue skies....
 
Blue Skies was written by Irving Berlin in December 1926.  The singer Belle Baker, introduced it on December 28th (My Mom's birthday and my grandson's) in 1926.

♫♫Bluebirds singing a song, nothin' but Blue skies all day long!♫♫
  We love the bluebirds, too!  This is a picture of a Blue Bird in our back yard last Spring when we had snow in early February here in South Carolina!  Hubby was able to snap this beautiful little fellow who was hanging to eat on the suet blog cage.

Hi Kerrie. I love today's post. It certainly was a beautiful start to my beautiful Sunday morning.
Have a great day, Sue

A lovely post to brighten a cold and damp UK. Loved the song and the pictures, I keep thinking spring is on the way, until I looked at the weather for Nashville
(I'm flying there on Thursday) saying snow is coming to Nashville.

Keep up the good work.
Yvonne.

I LOVE this song Kerrie!! Always have! And now I will be singing it all day! But that is very cool. What a delightful post, I love your comment about wanting to hang those pictures so you can always have blue skies. And you have a buttermilk sky! I'm going to do a post on buttermilk skies. Willie has done some beautiful songs, hasn't he? Phil's favorite is "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain", have you heard that one? It is beautiful, though not as upbeat as this one. Hope you have a lovely Sunday

Your blue skies are beautiful, Kerrie. We were noticing how very blue the sky was yesterday. I could watch the skies for hours.
