Rainbow, sun and rain

The weather has been so strange in the last few days.  You may have seen the post about the walk we did on Saturday, it began in the rain and ended with a wonderful sunset.  Then Sunday, Monday and Tuesday were very wet and the wind blew and blew, but it wasn’t cold.  Yesterday, Wednesday, was sunny and warm so I was able to work transplanting Stripa tenuissima, Verbena bonarienis and Gaura from where they had seeded themselves to the slope (it is filling up nicely).

Today I woke to clear skies and it was quite warm, then this afternoon as I was driving home the temperature dropped suddenly to 4° C.  By the time I arrived home it was raining hard but the sun was still shining – I looked for a rainbow and was rewarded with a rainbow that completely encircled the house, some of the time it was even a double rainbow.  What a wonderful gift!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

You can just see my shadow

This last photo you will maybe recognise from my post last week; the same view but in a very different light.
