Local Honey ...

“Life is the flower for which love is the honey.”
                ~ Victor Hugo
                   ~ 1802-1885

Local honey is for sale on the front porch of one of the colorful houses in Belvidere, New Jersey, a bright and fun touch of Americana on a late summer September day.

Belvidere, one of my very favorite places, is a charming Victorian town located on the banks of the Pequest and Delaware Rivers.

The Blue Moon Hops ...

“Blue moon, blue moon, blue moon
Keep shining bright,
Blue moon, keep on shining bright
You’re gonna bring me back my baby tonight,
Blue moon, keep shining bright.
I said Blue Moon of Kentucky
keep on shining …”
                                ~ “Blue Moon of Kentucky”
                 ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley
                                             ~ 1954
The Blue Moon Brewing Company helps keep spirits shining bright at the 10th annual Blues, Brews & Barbecue in downtown Allentown, Pennsylvania June 10, 2017 … a tad before summer but a great way to kick off the season with the sounds of the blues & the taste of brews and barbecue!

I blended a street scene photo I shot at the festival of a Blue Moon beer truck with a Blue Moon I captured shining over Cedar Creek Parkway, Allentown on July 31, 2015.

A Blue Moon is defined as any time there is a second full moon in a calendar month, according to NASA. The next will occur January 2, 2018.

“Blue Moon of Kentucky” is the official Bluegrass song of Kentucky, written by Bill Monroe, “The Father of Bluegrass,” in 1946.

The great Elvis Presley – an artist who occurs “once in a blue moon,” – recorded his fantastic rockabilly version in 1954.

Texture by Jai Johnson added for artistic effect.

The Colors Of Warmth ...

"Life is art, live yours in color."

Brightly colored mini-marshmallows do
a happy dance as they swirl in a cup of
hot cocoa, warming up a cold
winter's day.
