Hello and welcome to Blue Monday hosted by Sally of Smiling Sally. Thank you Sally for hosting this fun event.
Today for my blue I have my handsome grandson. He is my first grandchild and he was off to his senior prom in these pics. He brought his friend over to meet me and I had worked all week to get my flower gardens ready to use as background for pictures. An hour before they were to leave it started pouring down rain. We had to take pics on the porch. They looked so cute and her blue gown was just beautiful! My grandson is the sweetest kid! He's going to college in the fall to become a physical therapist.

Off they go! Have fun Joey and Cassendra! Love you!
Thank you so much for stopping by. It was so nice to visit with you! Have a great week and I'll be back saturday for a Pink Saturday post.

Oh Miss Shirl what a wonderful grandson! He is a Prince escorting his Princess to the grand ball at the castle....such a purrrfect post for Blue Monday. I think I see some little mice and a pumpkin hiding in the hostas! Are you the Fairy Godmother? I think so....
Love your adoring Miss Peach
