Indigo blue as the afternoon dips through dusk into night. Mood Indigo. The colour sings Blue. Delphinium, Larkspur, Wisteria, Bellflowers and Forget me not. Blue Lobelia glowing at dusk. Chefchaouen in Morocco. A city painted Blue. Blue Monet, Blue Van Gogh, painting himself in Blues. Glorious Blues.
You ain’t been blue, no no no.
You ain’t been blue, ‘till you’ve had that Mood Indigo.
That feeling goes stealing down to my shoes.
While I sit and sigh, go ‘long blues.
Always get that Mood Indigo, since my baby said goodbye.
In the evening when lights are low, I’m so lonesome I could cry.
‘cause there’s nobody who cares about me,
I’m just a soul who’s bluer than blue can be.
When I get that Mood Indigo, I could lay me down and die.
The Blues can render you inconsolable. Blues can make you cry.
But – Blue is the colour of my son’s eyes. Alice in Wonderland wearing her blue dress. Paddington Bear with his Blue Duffel Coat. All shades of blue run through rivers and lakes, brooks and streams. Blue is a colour painted in my dreams. Bountiful, life-full Blue.
Notting Hill Blues
Blue is the colour of Sky and Sea. Bluebells and Blue Tits. Old and faded Blue Denim Jeans & a Blue & White Breton Striped top, a blue Bandana. a beloved blue jug, the blue and white of Cornish ware. Willow pattern and old white enamel kitchen tins, bowls, plates and mugs- ringed with blue trim. I love all of those Blues. ‘Lavenders blue dilly dilly….

‘They’ll be Blue Birds over the White Cliffs of Dover.’
