I have returned from the tropics and I have lots of pictures to share. Since I was there for a week I thought I would post something each day for the next week about the island of Bonaire. Today’s post is about color. Bonaire is actually a very arid island, not much sand, the palm trees are imported and they use cactus as fences. The natural color comes from the ocean (I’m saving that for another post) and the flowers. In addition, the residents of the island enjoy painting their buildings bright, happy, easter egg colors. They use these same colors on their signs. It was difficult to come back to the gray of late winter/early spring…but I was encouraged to see the crocuses up, it won’t be long now before we see color again here at home.
