happy rainbow easter monday!
it’s an overdue, overstuffed rainbow of eggs and flower buds and all things symbolic of springing forth new life! hurray for spring!
psst! rubber bands were a fun, accidental discovery for using what we had on hand for egg dying!
pink: sunrise on sunrader
red: easter cake we were forced to eat by our housemate… it’s a hard life here at the vacation house, but somehow we find a way to carry on.
red: quinn declared this random organic design on the egg he dyed purple and red for rich to be “a perfect suncatcher!”
red: this is the situation in our basement right now.
red: blossom bonanza!
orange: more sunrise goodness.
orange: blossoming oregon grape on the roadside
orange: i confess, i purposely use glass jars and shiny spoons for egg dying, to enhance photographic potential! this year i managed to time it during an afternoon sunny spell as well. by a big window. contrived for the best possible color and reflection fun!
yellow: not sure if this is the same species of bird that visited bernie (a lesser goldfinch, that is), but i’m definitely feeling the bird.
yellow: it’s violet season!
green: pear blossoms… when we arrived in vacation land, the pears were small and not yet ripe, and it looks like we will nearly close the circle on the pear’s annual cycle before we depart vacation land.
green: norma, the neighborhood blossom tree.
green: happy belated st. patrick’s day! it’s not all sunshine and easter eggs around here.
green: st. patty’s jello. we had fun declaring its different flavors (bertie bott’s style): mmm, this bite tastes like kiwi! um, i think i just got grass clippings! ack, that bite was sticker bushes!
green: the young paleontologist displays a rare green dinosaur egg! (a wrinkly-shelled gift from my sister’s elderly laying hen!)
blue: shiny sunset beach date walk
blue: wispy sky with rainbow sundog during my commute to work.
blue: bart supervising the egg dying
blue: checking the blue egg for color saturation
blue: photo play time
purple: violets lurking around every corner…
…in spite of the obvious challenges brought on by spring time.
purple: so much new life!
purple: first azalea bloom, the brave pioneer, forging ahead into this season of abundance!
