We’re definitely not in the emerald city, but last night somewhere over the emerald fields and out beyond the verdant green forest, we had a beautiful rainbow.
It has been a very rainy week—a rainy spring, in fact—so I’m hoping this rainbow is a sign that the weather is taking a turn for the better.
Fortunately, the farm is not plagued by any flying monkeys. However, we do have enough mosquitoes to carry off a small dog or a full grown woman, so heading out into the hay fields to take pictures of rainbows is hazardous.
Raindrops, mosquitoes, even flying monkeys, bring it on.
There is absolutely no place like home.
I love a slight wind. It carries those mosquitoes away
Me too. There were a number of things not in my favour: long grass, dusk, and a rainy day. It all added up to mosquito heaven.
Did you notice your picture of the rainbow is actually a double rainbow?
Good eye, Meghan! I didn’t notice it IRL last night, but when I was editing the photo and bumped up the saturation, it became visible… The magic of Photoshop!
What a beautiful picture! We have not had many mosquitos here yet, but we have been plagued by buffalo gnats! They are awful they bite and give you terrible welts! It makes you dread going outside unless it is windy!
Ugh. We call them black flies up here, and fortunately we haven’t had any at our place. We have to go a bit farther north to get to black fly (or buffalo gnat) territory. Their bite is awful! You have my sympathies.
Lovely! But you may need to invest in some repellent 😉
Repellent, screening, indoor activities after sunset…
