Something Blue

I noticed that when the mud dauber wasp's wings catch the sun, 
they are shiny blue.
 I did my slow quiet walk around my back yard 
and noticed the dragon fly, also blue. Blue. 
Do we see blue often in nature?
 Yes, I turned in my spot knowing 
the blue spruce stood tall right behind me. 
Stealthily I made my way back to the pond
 and was greeted by this damselfly.
 Blue, not only for summer skies and open waters.

"Roll on, thou deep and dark blue Ocean - roll!"   Lord Byron from Childe Harold


  1. Nature study as it should be. Gentle.

  2. I just found your blog. How wonderful it is to find a fellow Canadian. I am very interested to learn from you as I am a new to the Charlotte Mason method, though not to homeschooling.
