Mybe not bright but a very pretty blue. Blue and green are so fresh against one another, I think. Lovely photo.

Oh my, yes, they are gorgeous :) I bought one at a rummage sale once and it lived many, many years till I had kids and they poured juice on it...

Kerry/Ed&Reub
Thanks for visiting! I once commented on Jessica's blog, but is Jessica since she is back, the one writing on Ed&Reub's blog??
Had to laugh though -you're so adventurous, buying veggies without having any idea what dishes to use them in:)

California Girl,
You're right -they would be very pretty in watercolor!

A2Z,
I was at your blog again -how do you keep up with all the memes?
I started just because I had nto enough material to write, but now I don't know if I can keep up with 3!
A Bientot! (sorry no accents)
