playing a little catch-up today after a very busy few weeks of getting the our living school summer program underway… here’s an extra long rainbow monday post!
red: elderberries everywhere!
red: i walked up to this crab when quinn and i were tidepooling on saturday morning, wondering if it was dead. as soon as i got near it, it raised up a claw to let me know it was not to be messed with.
orange: everything is blooming early this year, or i am in more and more denial with each passing year about how quickly summer races by.
more orange: “red” sea urchin and a swath of some colonial rock-painting orange sea creature.
still more orange: barnacles growing on an orange-shelled snail who visited the ols summer program for a fun experiment.
yellow: these lilies aren’t mine, but i sure like them. they were growing at the strawberry farm where we recently picked with good friends.
green: vine maple is one of the greenest greens i know.
green: although, green sea anemones give vine maple a run for their money, in their own way.
green: ok, ok, i can’t decide who wins the green competition.
blue: during our fabulous week off before summer program got underway, we also had time to spend at the beach with still more good friends. i didn’t even take this picture, i am so surrounded by friends!
blue: our very own homegrown blueberries; several years of work on our bushes is paying off at last.
purple: sea urchins aplenty!
brown: our friendly local elk herd. some of the boys.
pink: the end (sunset on the way home from country fair.)
