There Must Be a Pot of Gold.................

I had to share these photos with you, justlook at the colours!
We've had a few days of mixed weather, including an thunder and lighening storm that stayed on top of our house for quite some time in the middle of the night.
It's a good thing we don't have 2 dogs that are afraid of the noise.

The only sad thing was we had spent the day before whitewashing one side of the house... we woke to dirty streaks down, what was, a brilliant white wall only hours before.
The temperature is going up though and I'm hoping to be swimming on my birthday!!

Looks fantastic Jude. I have a dog thats terrified of thunder and she was wrapped round Ian's neck most of the night shaking.

Fantastic light. I'm sure the streaks will liven the wall up a bit ;-))

Swimming on your birthday sounds good, something to tell us about in damp, grey west Wales today. I don't know about taking photos of rainbows, but I think you might have found the end of one living there.

Simply Beautiful! Mother Nature at her best. Out of thunderstorms and heavy rain comes beauty like this. Thanks, it made my day.

Rainbows are magic, aren't they? Is that the view from your house?
When is your birthday?
Lots of questions and a great post!

Beautiful pictures Jude. I love how the sky is dark above the rainbow and lighter beneath.
Oh how I feel for you with the wall. Another white washing day lined up I guess. But not on your birthday! Happy day whenever it is.
