Congratulations, folks, it’s March which means we made it through winter. Whew! It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day and I’m finding unexpected rainbows across Chicago. This little pot of graffiti gold was hiding down a side street that I happened to turn down on my walk home…

And last week the kids and I found this pretty rainbow behind a Lakeview playground that we visited after playing by the lake, visiting a record store and eating scoops of ice cream.

Each month I share an original color palette using Astrobrights Papers who I’d like to thank for sponsoring these posts. All color palettes and opinions are mine. In the past I’ve been inspired by Valentine heart cookies, the lush green plants in Chicago’s Garfield Park Observatory, German nutcrackers and Midwestern fall leaves and sugar skulls and baseball games and vintage quilts and an ocean of violets in bloom and lemonade and wild berries and beach toys.

I’ve been pinning a lot of lucky rainbows lately.

And let’s throwback to last summer’s amazing full rainbow over the city of Chicago. Never seen anything like it before or since.
