b for blue, me for you

ABC Wednesday's letter du jour for Round 9 is B and for me that usually means blue. Today I give you my glass totem in blue. On our way home from our trip to Winnipeg last month we meandered through the historic town Fergus Falls, along the Otter Tail River, where along a boulevard in front of a lovely old house a collection of these handmade 'totems' were for sale. The artist uses all  manner of old glass, molding them together atop an upside down bud vase. They easily slip over an electrical conduit pipe and voila, a light-catcher in my flowers. 
Visit ABC Wednesday, Round 9 for more B's

Very clever and pretty! And much more visually interesting than the gazing balls at my local greenhouse. I love that shade of blue, it looks lovely in the sunshine of your garden (your flowers in the background are beautiful too!)

Perfect! Blue is beautiful and lavender could be lovely, too! I'll be your husband will have a great ride - the weather should be pretty decent now and it IS a stunning trip. There was a time in my life when motorcycles figured prominently. Been more than a year ago! :)

Glass is a fascinating material, like water that has (nearly) stopped flowing.

Thank you for the comment. It was much appreciated.
