Saturday Snippets… 28th August 2021…Rainbow…

Welcome to Saturday Snippets where I indulge my whimsy and my passions… maybe a tune or two…something which has caught my eye this last week…just anything out of the ordinary or extraordinary…I am enjoying just taking a prompt from one word it opens up a whole world and never ceases to surprise me as I hope it does you too…

Come with me and see what I discovered…my word today is…Rainbow…

Definition : noun
an arch of colours formed in the sky in certain circumstances, caused by the refraction and
dispersion of the sun’s light by rain or other water droplets in the atmosphere.

    That snake is gorgeous!
    I love to throw rainbow trouts on the grill whenever my husband catches some. They are so tender and delicious.
    I don’t know what’s girlie about rainbows, but we have a special blessings to be pronounced when we see a rainbow.

    Love this colorful post Carol. Who doesn’t love rainbows? I too had never heard of South Border but am in love with that song! Much better than snakes, even if they are rainbow colored LOL ❤ xx

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful information. I never had thought that, there could be so much rainbow like things in our environment. My favorites are the original, the Lorikeets and the icecream. Lol Have a beautiful rest of the weekend, Carol! xx Michael

    I liked the opening song, but I kept waiting for the image to turn into a rainbow!

    no comment on the snake…

    I’d love to see a rainbow cactus someday…

    I think that’s the second time this week I’ve heard of a rainbow tree, and I had never heard of one before!

    those rainbow chiles are beautiful – I hope they taste good as well…

    And now I want to visit Rainbow Village.

    and what a great way to end – a wonderful song by an amazing singer…

    We used to fish Rainbow Trout with my dad. Fishing was his favorite way to relax. When he passed away, I found comfort thinking he was up there showing the angels how it’s done 🙂
    The Eucalyptus is amazing! We have one (much smaller) but it has a silvery trunk, not the rainbow hues.
    Enjoyed this post, and now I think I need to add Rainbow to my list of heroine’s names!

      How lovely Jacquie that you have such fond memories of your father fishing for Rainbow trout…I absolutely love the Rainbow eucalyptus I would think even a silvery trunk would be quite lovely though 🙂 x

    Have always wanted to grow a Rainbow Eucalyptus, the changing colors of your pepper plant and the story of the Rainbow Village are fascinating. Thanks for sharing.
