Where have all the flowers gone?
The deer have ate them, every one...
Oh wait, that's not how it goes.
And he didn't really eat very much - just a bite or two here and there.
Here's what he was snacking on, the Weigela there on the left. In the middle is a Nishiki Willow and my large purple Iris on the right.
Earlier this week, it was raining while the sun was shining. I was watching for a rainbow - the conditions were right.
Suddenly one just materialized out of nowhere!
While I was watching, a second rainbow started taking shape above the first one...but it disappeared without becoming really bright. Can you make it out in the photo?
I zoomed in a bit to show how bright the first one was near the bottom. Really remarkable, and much better to see in person than these dinky camera images.
Within a few minutes it faded away nearly as fast as it showed up.
I started wondering if anyone can ever see both ends of a rainbow, so I Googled it, and yes, it happens...and furthermore, pilots can sometimes, but rarely, see a full circle rainbow from the sky.
