snap it 'colourful'

Greetings all,
Oh yay, Faith Hope & a Whole Lotta Love's Snap It this week is colourful, do i hear a hallelujah.  I adore, love, breathe & live colour.  I snapped these flowers at the first day of Floriade in glorious sunshine.
 Weekends = freshly squeezed orange juice from the bounty of oranges my husband brings home (caveman style, sack over shoulder, beating chest "want juice") from the Farmer's Market.  The rich pulp is so sweet & delicious this time of year, i made ice blocks for the children after our Saturday in the sun.   
 Thank goodness i make hay while the sun shines (literally - hay mulch from the chicken coop has been spread on the garden) as i got hail on the school run.  Look at it hitting the centre sun roof.  My husband even rang to see if i had thrown myself over the top of our new car to protect it??  Um, no, i stayed inside with a magazine & heated seat thanks!!
 This darling girl, my treasured middle daughter, has just spent two days home with her mama - she has a really sore shoulder, she can't play sports & is completely deflated.  We've had such a nice quiet time together, she never asks for days off or gets sick . . . we've done sushi, a movie & Lego . . . that is my children's trifecta of mama love!!  
Loving the colour of Spring . . . fashion, flowers, food . . . just makes you feel happy.  I wish i could rock coloured jeans, like i did back in year 8.  My girls have pink, lemon & lime, mixed with pastels, sequins & primary colours, it all works so well, on them.  
Are you introducing as much colour into your life as possible this time of year, Southern Hemisphere folks??  We're still waiting for our Araucana chicken to lay her Easter eggs, stay tuned, she's still settling in.  Love Posie

Beautiful shots Jennie! I'd love to make it to Floriade one year. It looks lovely. I hope your darling girl feels better soon. I've also had my eldest home crook. Nothing major, a sore throat and sounding alot like Carol Channing. Nothing that a few days at home with lots of lemon tea and old movies can't fix.
Have a great week lovely. x

Hi there Posie, I absolutely love Floriade - visited every year when I lived in Canberra for Uni and I worked there one year during the festival. Thumbs down to sport-loving kids who can't play their games due to injuries but huge thumbs up for special mama time :-)

It seems my girls are fast collecting a rainbow of jeans, I love seeing them in such bright colours and they have never loved jeans before so it's a whole new thing for us. But not for me.

Oh Posie, how beautiful are your babies!? They have gorgeous genes those kidlets... your boy is going to be VERY popular with the ladies, if not already ;)
And those blooms, oh WOW! I have always wanted to make the trek to Floriade... and these images are precisely why! xoxo
