On Tuesday evening, while Murray was picking rocks in the garden, I took a little walk to the neighbour's pond to see if there was any wildlife there. It was one of those pretty spring evenings after a rainy day and everything looked fresh and the air smelled wonderful. There wasn't a breath of air and it was almost a bit muggy. There were no bugs or blackflies to annoy me....they'll be appearing soon enough....and there wasn't a duck in the pond. There was a red-winged blackbird singing in a nearby tree but that was the only sound. Even the spring peepers were quiet as can be. The sky was dark with clouds but there were some clearing breaks as the sun was setting. I walked back and helped Murray pick rocks for a while. A little while later the sky grew very dark and a heavy rain shower fell. Then the sun broke through as it set and I spied a rainbow. There are a lot of photos. Enjoy!
This was a Manitoba Maple tree that Tropical Storm Arthur blew down last July.
A parting shot.
Looking back toward the pond from our deck. By now the peepers were singing up a storm....literally.
The sky grew darker then it poured rain for a few minutes.....after we were finished outside.
The sky was a beautiful peachy-orange shade with clearing sky behind it. It made for a beautiful silhouette with the trees and barn.
And a beautiful rainbow appeared in the southeastern sky.
You'd think that today would be a nice spring day here but it was chilly and cloudy most of the day. The sky is now blue and it's sunny at the supper hour and we will have a nice stretch of weather for the next several days with our long Victoria Day holiday weekend.
I hope to be back with a post before the weekend starts.
Thanks for stopping by.
