SkyWatch - Surprise!


There I was, weeding for much longer than my body could take
I even kept on when the rain started
until I got dizzy being bent over

I stretched and carefully turned so as not to fall or step on 
my tulips peeping above the ground

and there it was!

a full rainbow right across the sky


naturally even when weeding, my camera was at hand


so I just about snapped over


and there you have it . . .

  3. Good for you to have the camera at hand, even when you are working in the garden. Beautiful rainbow. I also like the header with the old stove very much.

  21. Capturing a rainbow is always a thrill - one that I've only ever had a few times. Your subconscious must have known there was something worth weeding in the rain for - it's magnificent!! Have a great weekend!!

  22. You were well rewarded for your diligence! I never can seem to manage to have my camera at hand when I'm working in the garden. Seems like I'm always up to my elbows in dirt!
