Lavender’s Blue


“Lavender’s blue, dilly dilly, lavender’s green,
When I am king, dilly, dilly, you shall be queen.
Who told you so, dilly, dilly, who told you so?
‘Twas my own heart, dilly, dilly, that told me so.”


This is dedicated to my wife, Gini, who so graciously said “I Do”, once upon a time in my heart.

Sweetheart, thank you for filling my life with color, understanding, adventure and Love.  We have so much more ahead of us!




We went for a drive on the first day of March and the day was filled with lavender and blue.

    I remember a young man hanging over the back fence to “visit” with the girl next door. It’s been a long visit huh! Congratulations to you and to my favorite Doctor. Doc Gini Jones. I love your lavender tribute.

  4. Looks like a beautiful day. Happy anniversary!

  5. What a beautiful post… And Happy Anniversary to you both!! All of the images are just perfect, but I adore the scrub jay shot. Just love him.

  6. Oh, did those lyrics bring back memories, Wally. The photos and your words are a lovely tribute to Gini. Happy Anniversary to you both!

  7. Aww, what a sweet post! Happy anniversary. Your shots are so beautiful, especially the scrub jay. What a handsome fella. 🙂

  8. Wally, You old softy. Happy Anniversary to you and your undertsnding wife for however many years it is – and I note your not letting on! Great blue skies there especially the first one.

    • Thank you, Phil. Only 45 years so far. She’s still not sure if it’ll last. I got lucky and found a girl who likes being outside as much as I do!

  9. Those are the sweetest words a wife could ever hear Wally- Happy Anniversary to you and your sweetheart. Lavender Blue is a dilly oldie.

    this was my first post to read this morning – and what a wonderful way to start the day. happy anniversary to you both!

  11. Happy Anniversary, Wally and Gini. Looks like this crush you two kids have on each other is going to work out! When you sing (and photograph) “the blues” the song is happy and sweet. “March of Color” is another lovely mood piece. So glad to see the Bluebird of Happiness has graced you with its presence. I love you and Gini.

    • Yeah, I think that “girl next door” thing might be okay! That cold front sure made for a nice sky. Now I’m ready for it to warm up!

      Love you!

  12. Happy Anniversary Wally and to your lovely wife too!

    A lovely series of images. they look so spring like.

    • Thanks, Mia. We’re actually having a cold snap, down to 34 (F) – brrrr! It did make for nice clear blue skies, though!
