Through The Sprinklers

I was at the park the other day, and as I was sitting there drinking my coffee, the sprinklers came on.  Through the sprinklers shined a beautiful rainbow.  I think rainbows are special, and that when we see them, it is a gift.



The colors of the rainbow,
So pretty in the sky.
Are also on the faces
of people going by.
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, "how do you do?"
They're really saying,
"I love you."

lyrics of
What a Wonderful World
Louis Armstrong



If you ever see a rainbow, be sure to tell me.  I'd love to hear your story.

Hi Sheri,
It's been a while since I have seen a rainbow. I hope I have my camera handy when and if I do see one! Love rainbows, after all I really need to find that pot of gold soon! LOL!
Have a wonderful rainbow kind of week my friend.

Nothing could bring a smile to my grandkids more than a rainbow. They were mystified and enchanted by them. Rainbows remind me of Kermit the Frog and the song he sings The Rainbow Connection.

Although rainbows are explainded as optical phenomena that occur when white light is refracted into its spectrum of colors, the dictionary still defines rainbows as Noah did: a symbol of hope.

I'll remember you when the first Autum rains bring endless rainbows to our skies.

Blessings,
Teresa

I love rainbows, too. At a certain time in the late afternoon the sun hits against our DR chandelier causing a burst of mini-rainbows for several minutes. The kids watch for it and call it magic and try to scoop up the "fairy" tracks. I love to watch them-- xo Diana

Such a pretty post. It doesn't rain much in this part of California so when we see a rainbow it's a pretty big deal. Once I saw a double rainbow and both were full :) Thanks for the reminder of how special those moments are.

Love those beautiful flowers in all different colors! And the hand holding a rainbow. We get a lot of rainbows around here with all our rain. And the double rainbows make me feel extra special!
Hoping you have a lovely day!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and for your sweet compliments. Your blog looks lovely too and I will visit often. Yes, rainbows are amazing, one day while dropping my daughter off at school I saw a double rainbow, and that was really special. Have a good evening.

Hi Sheri, what a lovely post. Did you use photo-shop for your rainbow photos?

I love that song.

In regard to the comment you left:
You are the first person to mention the song, that surprised me a little. I know that it is an old tune but I really thought that more people would have recognized it. Thank you so much for this sweet visit and for the sweet comment. Have a wonderful week, Connie :)

I didn't take the pictures on my rainbow post. We take most of the pictures that you see on our blog, but these are google images that I thought would go perfect with the post. Thank you for visiting.
