There are quite a number of blues in the meadow at present, here is a selection captured.
Apologies for only voting yesterday, I decided to take myself down to the beach for the first dip of the year in the sea, and may well do so again today, as the temperatures are forecast to rise way above 30C.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone Smile

Def. V1. Really pretty. And I really don't envy you your 30 degree heat. Anything above about 22 and I wither. But I do love the sea.
Have a good day. Smile

I wouldn't mind a dip in the sea - but not where I live. Would freeze your butt off even if you are lucky enough to get a good day.

I might just go for a dip in the sea if I invested in a wet suit! And I haven't seen a butterfly for quite a few days. But at least they're thinking that the hose pipe ban might be relaxed by Autumn, now!!!

v1, Carol, all excellent but I do like the shape and presentation of the first.

WHAT a gorgeous selection, Carol. I know I don't have to have a favourite...

...but for once, I can't decide which one takes me the most!

Enjoy the sea and go dip-dip-dipping as often as you can. It's wonderful, isn't it?

Certainly not swimming cozzies weather here, Carol, it's cold, grey and wet Sad In fact, in Wales they've had floods and people have had to be rescued by helicopter.
A cracking set here, each worthy of it's own upload. I'm torn between V1 and V4 as my faves today Wink

A fair few of us are suffering from the Summertime blues Carol and this stupendous set is just the tonic to cure them. You've really excelled yourself here and spoiled us with this fabulous selection. Each one of these deserves an upload in its own right. When the weather turns nasty again you'll be able to reload some of these again
