Yesterday afternoon it clouded up, not an unusual occurrence here in England where the weather is quite fickle and changeable. You just can't trust it. I seldom leave home without carrying a small umbrella in my purse or wearing a lightweight rain jacket. After the rain arrived, our resident garden snails were busy sliming their way across the back patio.
Then an hour or so later as we crept closer to sundown (which is getting close to 9:00 pm on clear days at this time of year), the 9th grader shouted down to me from her bedroom upstairs that there was a really vivid rainbow with a faint second one visible, too. I took the second pic a bit later as the sky shifted to a pink and and purple hue.
