Rainbows

We British like to talk about the weather.
A lot.
And right now, the weather is giving us plenty to talk about.
But, you know, just occasionally somethings happens in the sky and we stop to look.

There's something magical about rainbows.
They are supposedly God's promise to never flood the world again.
Which isn't much comfort if you are currently flooded, is it?  

Rinda has a beautiful shot of a rainbow on her blog here.

I thought we Canadians talked about the weather a lot. Of course because we talk so much about the winter weather of late, we have a few new words to throw in to liven the conversation up; Polar Vortex & Snow Event are two, meaning it is cold and there is more snow on the way. There I just proved we do talk a lot about weather (lol).

Aren't they lovely? Very pretty ... Yes, it is ironic, isn't it :(.

Haha - I always wondered how that promise from God made sense when the only time you see rainbows is when there's rain. :o)

Anyway, your rainbow photos are lovely, Ruth! Love them!

I had that question too Deb!

Love rainbows and the kids get so excited when they see one!

I didn't know that, if I had known it I would be asking the same question! Lovely pictures, I like the one through the trees.

So pretty, special that second photo. Rainbows only come after the rains have stopped ;) I have always heard ya'll like to talk about the weather but think it may be universal lol There is a meme of "if you don't like the weather in _____ just wait 15 minutes" People form everywhere seem to post it :) We are expected several inches of snow and some ice over the next 3 days. Next week we will hover around 68 the entire week @@
