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: wild strawberries growing in the dunes.

orange IMG_8743

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.

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.

    seeing a new rainbow is the highlight to my Monday.!! I really look forward to seeing all the color. you really have a true talent for capturing the moment, it’s amazing. you rock. it looks like z wants to stick his toe in q’s ear. babies playing with cousins,pokemon go redneck style and tie dye clotheslines are a few of my favorite things.

  • z was trying to trade q things for his glasses… at one point it was his pacifier (i almost slipped and used the b word on you) and then it was a chunk of dried grass. quinn was unwilling to relinquish the glasses, however. i am glad we share so many favorites! šŸ™‚

  • Holly.

    All I can say is…love…love…love…
