happy rainbow monday! let’s celebrate it with lots and lots of flowers, butterflies, cute boys, fruit, veggies, tie dye clotheslines, and other vibrant summer color! it’s no wonder my very first rainbow monday post was written this time of year, with the abundance of color as far as the eye can see.
red: crocosmia at my outlaw’s house.
red: wild strawberries growing in the dunes.
this color defies naming but fits in the spectrum somewhere between red and orange, i feel (except of course for the green undersides; i love green flowers). friends took rich and i out to dinner to celebrate our engagement, and brought us a lovely bouquet of zinnias.
orange: beach photo self care walks have been a thing for me recently.
orange: the professional cuteness committee has taken up this sleeping bag as a new hiding/napping spot.
orange: speaking of tigers…
orange: can you find the butterfly?
orange (and yellow): this sunbleached swallowtail was looking a little the worse for wear, as he fluttered around my mother-out-law’s beautiful garden.
peachy-yellow: sister’s dahlias
yellow: evening primrose watching the sunrise
yellow: another swallowtail with some chunks missing.
yellow: a refreshing cider on a lovely afternoon date with rich in between the 2 and 6 o’clock showings of quinn’s theatre camp performance.
green: kid’s camp at sister’s house with lots of kids and fun!
green (and purple): huckleberries thinking about ripening on a beach walk.
green: estuary self care walk without even a camera, but i did have a phone along.
blue: egg treasure
blue: the mood isn’t blue, just the outfit. he looks intense because he is mapping out the entire backyard in order to make an on-paper version of pokemon go (he plans to hide pokemon on me, and have me hide them on him). there was also a version played at kid’s camp using fallen green apples as pokeballs while walking around a pasture.
blue: estuary jelly
blue: when the mood does get a little blue, just put a baby on it.
purple: beach pea.
purple: the awesomeness that is theatre camp. there will be more words about this in lifelong learning posts…
purple: pretty foliage at outlaw’s.
purple: estuary clams. have a great week, and remember to take care of you in the middle of the busy summer whirlwind!
