A springtime rainbow

This part of the world seems to be very colourful at the moment, from the geraniums and nasturtiums by my front door…

To the bright yellow and acid greens of the wild flowers growing alongside my regular walking routes to school and up the Med Steps.

The blues and purples of the native Scilla Peruviana (impressed? I have the Alameda Gardens to thanks for the name) and decoractive Osteospermum. 

Even some of the trees are putting on a show!

Just look at the calming pastel hues of the Gibraltar Candytuft and more Osteospermum (also known as Cape Daisies). 

Even the sunlight is joining in…. I spotted this plethora of rainbows 🌈 while I was waiting for a lift in the Mid Town car park.

I must have arrived at just the right moment for the sun to be in the best rainbow producing position. The louvred glass window was the perfect vehicle to produce these technicolour stripes.

Even my Lent granny squares for my Sixty Million Trebles project blanket are joining in on the act… 

And please tell me I’m not the only one who finds the arrangement of these recycling bins pleasing to the eye?

What ever you’re up to today, I hope you have a bright and colourful one!

  1. The bins are lovely. At last a fellow fan! The ones in Greece are blue and I would love a blue dustbin. They have even appeared on present wish lists but no-one takes me seriously! The flowers are pretty nice too!

    1. Fantastic! I’m so glad I have another colourful bin appreciator in my midst!! Seriously, your family need to take your wishes seriously… perhaps a Mother’s Day bin is on the cards?? 😉

  2. It’s a gorgeous, colourful time of year, the countryside looks beautiful too. I especially like the chair by the bins, obviously someone likes to sit there to read the paper against a colourful backdrop!
