Sing a Rainbow

Red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and blue,
I can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow too.

Listen with your ears, listen with your eyes, and sing everything you see,
Now you can sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow, sing along with me.

Beautiful! You have nearly a whole rainbow's worth of flowers, and some real rainbows too. But who can resist Benny?

Dragonfly eyes look super high-tech.

Anvilcloud said...

You are so creative.

Did you start out with the pictures and find them to fit the song, or did you go find the pictures to fit the song? Whichever it was, you did such a wonderful job! Beautiful, just beautiful!

Red said...

Neat post! A song and some photos. Well done.

Slamdunk said...

Lovely colors and message Hilary. Our colors are a bit more brown after the recent heat wave, but I am certain we will bounce back.

Enjoy your weekend.

Jackie said...

You have a beautiful J.R. (They are like BB's in a box car, aren't they? :) ) Love him.
Your colors are gorgeously captured...and the rainbow...sigh.
God's promise to us.
Lovely beyond words.
Hugs,
Jackie

One of our favorite songs to sing on a car ride and these photos are dazzling. Love this. Oma Linda

Listening to some great music on my radio and seeing your photos, and i'm singing a rainbow now, too! Thank you.

photowannabe said...

I'm singing right along with you.
Beautiful examples of color.
The Dragonfly is amazing, and the silhouette of the bird in the tree is lovely.
Of course Benny is a winner anytime.

Love each and every one of these pics. The vibrant colours, the feel of summer that they evoke.
