on this st. patrick’s day morning, it felt particularly lucky to witness a rainbow right over the ocean.
red: the rest of this week’s rainbow monday photos are all flowers!!! our first rhododendrons of the year are the reds.
orange: the middle of this daffodil seems to have derived some extra minerals from living next to the compost heap.
green: comfrey, not yet flowering but almost!
purple: another patch of violets
white: i had been calling these magnolias, but i’ve been told they are starry dogwood trees. either way, i find them to be one of the most magical early blooms of spring.
speaking of magical, it was a nice weekend having my boy around, doing his traditional unstructured sunday activities of eat-your-age-in-pancakes, and lounging around partially dressed being read to. he also played with his legos, dragged his crab trap around the yard, and drew various new angry birds games of his own invention. oh, and played peek-a-boo with me while i was doing a flower photo-shoot just outside the window.
