R/ Alphabe-Thursday

Rainbow over an East Gwillimbury soccer field 

R is for RAINBOW.

Rainbow over an East Gwillimbury park

RAINBOW:  a spectrum of light seen in the sky when light from the sun shines through droplets of moisture in the Earth's atmosphere.

Rainbow effects can also be seen near fountains, water falls and...

Balloons in a rainbow of colours

even floating over strip malls. Festive, don't you think?

And somewhere northwest of where I live (I honestly forget where exactly),  a rainbow effect is painted on...

House painted in rainbow colours

a building. Yes, it's for real! So, would YOU paint your house like this?

I am linking to Jenny Matlock at Alphabe-Thursday HERE

Lois Evensen said...

It would be easy to give directions if you live in a house like that. ;)

Sandra said...

Sharon said...

Beautiful rainbow!

cieldequimper said...

This post kept getting better and better! The house is incredible, I love it!

Leora said...

Someone who painted that house must be really in love with color!
The rainbow is special, and I love balloons.

Roan said...

Oh my! I must rethink my new paint scheme. Everyone would be jealous of my house if I had one like that. ;)

Tina said...

Great shots. This house is cool! :)

How cheery and beautiful with all those colours.
And finding that painted house...priceless.
BTW, I can't find out when this link opens.

I love rainbows. Great R choice.

George said...

You got some beautiful pictures of rainbows, and of rainbow balloons. But I must admit that I'm not ready to paint our house in the rainbow colors you showed in your last picture.

Ann said...

The rainbows are almost vertical.

I will say Wow to the house, but sorry, I won't live in it.

It is the same as a multicolored rainbow bow. Sorry, I wear balck most of the time in winter.

Talking about winter, we have another polar blast.

Fabulous! Love all your rainbow images! No, I would not paint my house like this unless I lived alone on an island somewhere....

Judy said...

I love the second shot of the rainbow! The apple tree seems to be bathed in golden light!
That house is something else! I am trying not to judge other people, but that kinda stretches the limits...

Randy said...

Nice variety of rainbows!

RedPat said...

Wouldn't want to look at that house too often!

edenhills said...

I love the rainbow pictures. I was treated to a beautiful rainbow yesterday, but I didn't have my camera.

Kathy said...

I love rainbows but I would never paint my house like that!

Farmchick said...

Gorgeous rainbow, but I don't know about that house!

Buttons said...

Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. I love your photos.
That house is really different. I like it but not sure I would be brave enough to do that to my neighbours. :) B

taylorsoutback said...

Wondering what those folks do when the holidays arrive?? That is quite the house!!

Love the balloons against the blue sky...

Small City Scenes said...

Well rainbows are considered good luck so these people are playing into it. LOL MB

anjoe playhouse said...

Great rainbows and other rainbow colors! I would not mind painting my houses roof in these colors, it could be fun ;-)

Pondside said...

I love to see a rainbow, off in the distance. We don't see many here because of the trees.
No, I don't think I'll be painting my house in rainbow colours!

Gattina said...

It's a long time I haven't seen a rainbow !
I want to know who lives in this "Rainbow" house ! must be an artist or somebody a little crazy !

Elisa said...

That rainbow is wonderful, lucky you!
Have a nice day

VP said...

Nice set of rainbows, but the house beat them all!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

I love the rainbow of balloons.

Rose said...

Well, I tried to scan all the comments so far...maybe I missed it but no one pointed out the curtains in the rainbow house are all sky with clouds....Not sure I would want to live in it either....but to each his own. If you were looking for this place, it would be easy to spot.

Loved your rainbow shots, though. Actually loved the house, too. But for different reasons.

see you there! said...

The house if fun to look at but I think it would give ma a headache to live there.

Jacob said...

Omigod! You really went all out today. They're all wonderful but I really like that house painted in the "rainbow" colors...it's gawdy but...there's something about it. Could this have been a bar at one time?

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

That house is amazing! Not something I'd do, but quite striking...

Kerri said...

Lord no I couldn't live there, but it would be fun to look at! :) My husbund is from the Great White North- Etobicoke, Ontario.
Visiting from Alphabe-Thursday! :)

Sue said...

Those are some excellent rainbow shots!

=)

Janie said...

Excellent shots of the real rainbow, and that house is quite a find!

lissa said...

great captures. I like the colorful balloons.

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Beautiful rainbows, rainbow colored balloons... Wow, the house definitely stands out :o) It might have been something I would have liked as a kid...maybe :o)

Blessings & Aloha!
And thank you for your sweet comment!

We saw a double rainbow last Saturday evening after a mean thunderstorm. I love rainbows. I am always reminded of this saying I learned in church..."A rainbow is God's promise to us that he will never flood the Earth again." Whether or not it is true, I still look at a rainbow as a symbol of hope.~Ames

Theresa Plas said...

Happy! Happy! JoY! JoY! Love all the rainbows you've captured:)

Judie said...

We see lots of rainbows here during the monsoon season, but I have NEVER seen a house like that one!!

Jenny said...

I love rainbows! I remember when we did rainbow summer school for Alphabe-Thursday. I will never ever forget Roy G. Biv as long as I live!

This was such a beautiful and happy post!

The house made me smile.

A+

This is in Severn falls, muskoka. When I'm at my cottage I see this house frequently! So cool to find this on the internet searching rainbow house into google images
