I will miss the rainbows

We have five months left in this house and then we must move on. One of the things I will miss most about this place is the beautiful view.

Things Growing

Our whole yard is full of things ripening and growing. I'm sorry I've been so absent lately. Let me make it up to you by sharing some of the joy I see of growing things, just in our yard.

Getting Crafty

I know this blog is supposed to be about what I see and how I capture it on film, but this post is about what I saw and how I created it. Sorry to not stick with the theme.

I started out with a dress that had a top like this:
and a very full skirt. I knew I wouldn't wear it as this, so I cut off the skirt, fooled around with shirring and elastic thread and made this:

Then I took the top and messed around until I had a skirt for the Little One that looked like this:

She loves how flippy it is.

It was very satisfying, and a necessary addition to my wardrobe. Perhaps the bump reveals the reason I haven't been posting much lately.

Double Rainbow

Summer storms are my favorite! I wish you could hear the soundtrack! This was followed by a killer lightening show!

Non Nature

But I thought it was pretty.

Bleeding Snow

It's been disheartening to watch it snow all day today, so I had to find some beauty to redeem the day somehow. This flower is called a Bleeding Heart. So sad to see it covered in snow.

I used to say daffodils were my favorite flower, but after seeing these yellow tulips this morning, I really can't decide.

Something was calling to me today, and so I had to go out and try to capture the delight of new things growing!

It doesn't really look like popcorn, although it is an apricot tree. I was a little disappointed.
