Did anyone not hear this song as a child?? Or sing it?
As you will have surmised (smart detective that you are!), today is all about the rainbow. A little bit of a challenge given that I haven't seen a rainbow lately and therefore have been unable to photograph one. My take on the rainbow for summer is a little non-traditional in the "exact" colours but I did have some colourful photographs in my files and I did manage to find some cute things to photograph that spoke to me of rainbows.
this cute dress I found in the wee girls' section at Wal Mart (hello tiny person -- isn't this adorable? The tiny flip flops they were selling next to these had me gushing!)
a top from the young women's section at Wal Mart
and these belts, also from the young women's section
I had to buy some candy. I couldn't find "Skittles" but I did find some Smarties (made by Nestle, maybe sold only in Canada??) -- you know, "when you eat your Smarties, do you eat the red ones last, do you suck them very slowly or crunch them very fast?" I had to eat the brown ones because there is no brown in any rainbow, traditional or non!
and some sour candy...I'm sure my son and his friends will finish these off for me!
Isn't this amazing? It made me a little dizzy...I discovered it at the Skateboard Park on Monday and knew I had to snap it for "rainbow Thursday".
paint, bright, beautiful paint!!!
and a little tie-dye art!
The beauty of the colours of the rainbow is that you don't need to have rain and a true rainbow in the sky to create joy and happiness and add bolts of colour to your life...look around, there are rainbows everywhere.
