This is a Watery Wednesday post!  Please click here to see beautiful watery shots from around the world.

Today is the tenth day of the A - Z Challenge, which is hosted by  Arlee Bird's: Tossing It Out.   Several of my blogging friends are participating, and this year there are over 1,200 participants. We post everyday, except for Sundays, and work our way through the alphabet. I am posting past photos that I have taken, and am linking them up to the posts where the photos originated from too. When you are all done here at Oregon Gifts,  please click here to visit the other bloggers who are participating in this challenge.

If you miss a day, you miss a lot!  Don't miss out on the news ... Please click here to go to my home page and see what is happening in Mayberry today.

Wonderful shots. As a child, I walked many a mile trying to find the end which never happened.

Thank you, Dinah, Anni and Patti!

Dinah ... I really do think that rainbows are less fleeting in Kansas.

Anni, it was so pretty. What a weather day that was. I also got tons of great cloud shots at our grandson Cameron's game.

Patti, on a Saturday matinee they showed a short film where a guy did find the end of a rainbow ... but there wasn't a pot of gold. Probably because the camera man was there, lol.

The last rainbow shot is absolutely stunning. The contrasting colors in the photo are amazing!


With water they say that the best
Is clearest when put to the test;
No sediment there
To cause wear and tear—
Pure water sure beats all the rest!
