My Mum had some lovely sayings, from calling my Dad a clown when he’d done something a bit daft to watching ‘the doughnut machine’ making the bales of hay in the fields opposite the cottage when she came up to stay.
One of the others that has stayed with me is ‘Dirty Clouds’.
This was always when a storm was brewing and the skies came over dark and foreboding. Mum didn’t like thunderstorms and would pull the curtains or blinds to shut them out.
Such it was the other day.
As I was sitting here and looking outside, the sky came over very purple and I knew a rainbow would soon be on its way.
I was not disappointed and got the camera out and took these:
The sky got extremely dark then and the rainbow was one of the brightest I’ve seen, let alone captured in a photo.
No sooner had I downloaded the pictures and put the camera away, the rainbow disappeared and the skies opened.
