end of the last full week of third grade rainbow before school on friday – the day of our field trip to fly kites at the beach… luckily the rain mostly didn’t fall on us!

sunbows seem to be rather prevalent in the sky above dragon house 2.0!

pink IMG_7144

pink: a delicate pink columbine hiding in the front yard. a friend of mine posts columbine photos on april 20 each year as a reminder to us all of the columbine shooting. with the orlando shooting that just took place, these thoughts are especially on my mind, and my heart is with the families and loved ones of those killed and injured.

pink: it makes one want to hold one’s own loved ones closer, and savor the sweet moments life gives us, like the evening walks that are becoming a daily ritual for rich and i. normally we walk to our bayou but on our saturday walk we ranged farther afield in the neighborhood with camera in hand.

red: the abundance of roses is staggering. between them and the honeysuckle we can smell coming from every direction, our walks are quite heavenly!

yellow: the western tanager, according to my sibley guide, “feeds on insects and larvae gleaned from leaves.” apparently won’t look down its nose at my ripe cherries, either.

yellow IMG_7138

yellow: far more numerous in sightings, but far more difficult to photograph lately, the swallowtails are busy making unpredictable fast flights through the back yard.

blue IMG_6983

blue: they’re my blue sky, they’re my sunny day. love our kids. and they love each other, too. saturday morning on my 1-in-14 day off, strolling with my family. this is just before he got her to buy him extra pastries and take him to dutch bros.


purple: the morning breaking out our bedroom window. we can live with that view!
