It’s hard for me to believe but here we are the final color prompt in this year’s Summer of Color. The invitation is to create something with the combo of Raspberry, Tangerine and a pop of Lemon. In keeping with my intention, I created another small journal in which to track this week’s highlights. But I have to say I’m also tempted to have a dish of sorbets made with those flavors. Doesn’t that sound delicious?
Here’s a peek at my little hot-colored journal. I couldn’t resist adding the little vintage Japanese metal pin of the yellow bird. He seems to belong there doesn’t he? And after all it does seem like birds have been a theme this month what with my bluebirds of happiness, my discovery of precious pink Rosy Bourks, and the fabulous Funny Birds pop up book. It’s a little early but later in the summer I’m sure I’ll be spotting a little crew of yellow finches around here feasting on the sunflowers. That always delights my heart.
It just so happens that a box of raspberries was included in my CSA delivery today and so I googled raspberry lemon recipes. These bars sound pretty yummy!
By the way, we’re at mid-month already so I’m throwing out another reminder that I’m doing a giveaway in honor of my birthday month. If you’re interested pop over here and leave a comment about which package(s) you’d like your name thrown in the hat for.
And in the meantime I’d love to hear how color has popped in your week so far. Know of a raspberry-colored bird? Love lemons? Feeling amazed that we’re halfway through July already? Do tell – you know I love to hear.
